    MC Ultimate Trial won't launch

    I am trying Media Composer Ultimate for the first time, having been an MC user for years, most recently version 7.0.2.  I was able to download the trial and it opened once or twice.  Now I find that it won't open with any of my choices.  It stops loading at "Initializing Settings" and gives me the message, "unspecified file: read error." How can I get past this, please? By the way, I'm on a MacBook Pro, running OS 10.13.6.

    Do you have removable drives connected? Try disconnecting them and give it a go.

    Ralph,

    I tried that to no avail.  I am checking the option "want to continue using the trial."  Is there something else I should try?  Also, if removing drives turns out to be an answer, how do I save and work with media files?
