    I dont think that we will test and approve anythig else on MC 7.x.  I can certainly check but I am 99% positive that the OS approved is what will stand.

    Re: Media Composer v7.0.6 | AVAILABLE

    Just curious why you are staying on v7?

    If it's because of ScriptSync and PhaseFind, those are being re-interoduced to the latest version of MC soon.

    Re: Media Composer v7.0.6 | AVAILABLE

    Thanks for asking Kevin. Just because it still works ok and I want to stay away from Avid/Adobe 'new' subscription business model as long as I can. Thankfully my 3 year old hardware still works with OSX10.10.5.

    For those of you still holding on to v7 for PhraseFind and ScriptSync...they are back in Media Composer v8.8, now available.

    MC v8.8 is supported on macOS 10.10.5 (Yosemite), 10.11.6 (El Capitan), and 10.12.3 (Sierra).

    Re: Media Composer v7.0.6 | AVAILABLE

    I always have a v7 on a dedicated 10.8.5 on my qualified 17" laptop.

    Today I decided to update it to the latest, 7.0.6.4. 

    And it won't launch, I get this error:

    I can get the report, and then it gives another message:

     

    And then it quits to Desktop.

    I reinstalled several times, even went as far as redoing a full clean install of a fresh 10.8.5, same story. It just won't boot. Any idea?

    Also, I can't uninstall it with the uninstaller which is in /Applications, nor the one on the .dmg. 

    That release seems flaky at best!

     

    Here is the content of the report if it helps:

    None, just the laptop on its own - with a spare partition for storage.

    Hmmm...did a search of the forums and found several others who had this in the past with no onbious resolution.

    How much RAM do you have?

    Can you launch without the media drive attached or mounted? (Or hide the media folder?)

    What version previously worked properly?

    Re: Media Composer v7.0.6 | AVAILABLE

    There is an error similar to this one that is a fatal crash error and this is what solved that...

    try this

    Could be caused by the batch capture settings not being set properly. Under the "Settings" tab go to "Capture". Under the "Capture" settings go to the "Batch" tab. Make sure "Optimize for disk space" is selected.

    Re: Media Composer v7.0.6 | AVAILABLE

    Laptop has 16gig of RAM, so plenty. It boots from a SSD drive. I tried starting with no storage attached, and it's the same. It had 7.0.6.2 last, and that played fine, and very stable. If I get the time, I'll try to update the OS to 10.9.5 to see if it makes a difference.

    Marianna, I can't even go past the splash screen, so I can't access any of the settings. The whole thing is on a clean install, fresh OS.

    Another question...did you always have Interplay? I see the 7.0.6.4 version splash screen indicates that.

    No, I only tried to start it in Trial Mode so far, should I try from my dongle?

    Dongle didn't make any difference, it crashes right away at the same point.

    Re: Media Composer v7.0.6 | AVAILABLE

    Having done some tests with someone from support, it seems I'm not the first one. So I downgraded to 7.0.6.3 to try and had the same problem. Then to 7.0.6.2 and it works.

    No idea if it's a bug that crept in with the recent releases, and I don't know if it affects (if it's indeed a bug) machines like mine, or machines running MacOS 10.8.5.
