    Greg:

    Renaming the Pixie folder at C:\ProgramData\Pinnacle\Pixie to xPixie solved the problem for me as well.

    Re: Media Composer 5,5 - Node Lock License Not Found

    Hi, I had the same problem today when trying to activate my new 5.5 on Windows 7/64. I cam from Liquid but Liquid is not on the same computer. But on my computer there is an old Pinnacle Studio 12 version. Renaming \Pinnacle\Pixie to xPixie solved the problem for me too so thank you all. But this can't be the final solution. Regards.

    Re: Media Composer 5,5 - Node Lock License Not Found

    It is caused by the file user.pu2 of which both Avid Studio and MC 5.5 make use of.

    The MC 5.5. file contains a user qa_test with address qa_test@avid.com while Avid Studio contains my own name and email address.

    How Angry@#$%$#Angry that a professional tool like Media Composer is using Pinnacle's shared file system. Was it too complex to have the pixie file for MC stored on another location? The responsible sw-engineer should be punished by one month no salary .... Hmm.

    As I use both Avid Studio and Media Composer on the same machine I would like to see a solution within a very short timeframe.

    Fendstrat:

    Ok cool, so this solution sounds like it will work for you.  Glad to hear that.

    Your suggested work-around is not a solution. AS, a Win7-certified program and brand new, is causing the same problem.

    From an earlier reaction from your side I read that it was the intention to have \avid\pixie folder for MC (which is logical) but for Avid Studio this also sounds logical so ..... , all very confusing !!

    Creating a batch file for renaming the pixie folder, dependent from the application you start-up is not a solution either. Please come with a patch for MC which solves this once and for all.

    Hi Bernd,

    I've asked for some clarification on this.  I don't guarantee there'll be an answer, or that if there is that you'll like it.  I'll let you know if I hear anything.

    ciao,
