    App manager stuck on initializing

    Downloaded Composer first and cant get it to run. It says i need to login to application manager. When I start app manager it just says "initializing" and nothing more happens.

    I have updated the app manager, then unistalled everything an downloaded it again, but with the same result. Im running it on mac osx 10.12.6

    I have to say I am a bit dissapointed. Nowhere on the avid homepage does it say you have to run app manager, or even what it is. It just shows a lot of happy pople saying how easy composer first is. This is the "beginner" version, the "first" version people new to avid and video editing are suppost to use. Now I have created like 3 different accounts just to be able to write this post.

    I have tried some different editing softwere to find out what to use at home. With Premiere and DaVinci resolve I just downloaded and started, but not with avid.

    Re: App manager stuck on initializing

    Hi frlu,

      First thing I would check is your firewall settings, be sure that it's not blocking this program.

     

     

    Thanks,

    RalphC

    This is a test. Media Composer 8.8 w/Symphony option, HP Envy 17t-j100 Quad Edition laptop, Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i7 2.4GHz, 16 GB RAM, nVidia GeForce... [view my complete system specs]

    Nope, dont think thats it. I have allowed all avid programs acces, composer first, app manager, iLook (whatever that is). Also tried turning the firewall off, but nothing changed.

    Re: App manager stuck on initializing

    Mac Book Pro with Sierra 10.12.6. 2,8 GHz Intel Core i5, 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    Sure it´s a bit on the weak side, but the program should at least start ...right?

    I tried a 30 day trial of composer a while back, and that worked. I´m looking to upgrade the computer in the future, but right now i´m just seeking what editing program I want to use.

    The dual core i5 stink for performance especially since the editing application MC | First is derived from the big brother MC.  Not only that but you have a larger OS now with Sierra 10.12.x taking up performance.    The 30 day trial you may have used a while back was a earlier verion such as 8.x and had less functionality.

    Did you check the specifications for MC | First hardware ....   

    Does it give you any clue when starting up where it is stopping?  Do you have to force quit?  Does it crash and if so are there any crash logs created?

    Re: App manager stuck on initializing

    MC First doesn't start up at all. It just says "log in required", and App Manager is stuck on "initializing"
