    Hi, this is a known bug that they're working on, but I don't have an estimate on how long a solution will take. For now, try this:

    https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/Error_Message/EssentialResourceNotAvailableError-Launching-Media-Composer-2022-4

    Media Composer 2022.4 w/Symphony/SS/PF options, HP Z-Book G6 17", i7-9850H 2.60GHz, 32gb RAM, NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000, Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini... [view my complete system specs]

    Thanks but reinstalling without NDI did not work and the folder mentioned in the other solution doesn't exist.

    However the following did work for me.

     

    Remove the "OpenIO_NDI.acf" and "OpenIO_SRT.acf" from the AVX2 folder. Navigate to:
    
    For macOS: Macintosh HD> Library> Application Support> Avid> AVX2_Plug-Ins
    For Windows: C:> Program Files> Avid> Avid Media Composer> AVX2_Plug-Ins
