    Freeze upon loading project

    So i just got avid media composer 8.4.2 for my computer. My problem is that when i try to load project, old or new, external, shared, or private, it freezes when it trys to "read my settings" the program becomes non responsive and i have to force shut down. At first I.T told me it was because i was running it on windows 10, ok my bad. So i eventually got windows 8.1 pro which is one of the version of windows that it works with. So i go to run it, everythign is activated, licenses etc, etc. My Nvidia drivers are up to date, i downloaded the latest version of quick time, and it still freezes when i try to load, or start a new, project. What am i doing wrong here? 

    i have 16 GB of ram, Intel i7 4790K 4.0Gh, Nvidia GTX 970 and im running windows 8.1 

    any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Freeze upon loading project

    Hello,

         In case you run into the same issue, hold down the ALT key as you open the project.  This will promt MC to keep all the bins closed during start-up.  You can isolate which bin is causing MC to freeze.

     

     

    Good luck,

    Ralph
