    AVX2 Host Error

    I run Avid Media Composer 5.0.3 on a Mac Book Pro 7. It ran fine on 10.6.8, then eventually crashed and wouldn't even open. I installed OS 10.6.7 and Avid ran great all day. Then after closing the program and trying to open it again the next day, the same error happened: "Bus error" in thread "Main Thread", at adress 0x0.

     

    In the details it shows:
    Thread 0 crashed with X86 Thread State (32-bit):
      eax: 0x00000000  ebx: 0x51d33a9b  ecx: 0xffffffff  edx: 0x00000007
      edi: 0x00000000  esi: 0xbfffe540  ebp: 0xbfffe4c8  esp: 0xbfffe4a0
       ss: 0x0000001f  efl: 0x00010246  eip: 0x51ecd882   cs: 0x00000017
       ds: 0x0000001f   es: 0x0000001f   fs: 0x00000000   gs: 0x00000037
      cr2: 0x00000000

     

    I recently installed new fonts, would that have anything to do with it? Is it my mac OS or is it Avid?

    Thanks for any help!

    Re: AVX2 Host Error

    3 things to try, one at a time:

    1.  Get 5.0.4 from the Download Center, uninstall 5.0.3.x and install 5.0.4.  It still requires OSX 10.6.7 but has a number of bug fixes.

    2.  Try repairing permissions on your drive.  Can't hurt, might help.

    3.  Uninstall those new fonts and see if they were the culprits.

     

     

    MacPro, MacBook Pro and a Cube (masquerading as a kleenex dispenser). [view my complete system specs]

    Must think of something clever to go here...

    Hey, thanks for the response.

    I uninstalled the fonts and that seemed to do the trick.
