    The application binary file has been corrupted, please reinstall the system

    Hi

    M.C 2.5.2

    I am getting this message in most cases I am opening any BIN.

    "The application binary file has been corrupted, please reinstall the system"

    If I press OK I can work without problems.

    I have tried to remove and reinstall few times, even tried a new project and a new user settings..

    Hmmmm.  Is this an MC soft only installation or an upgraded  MCA?   The "system" might be meaning the OS here...

    Re: The application binary file has been corrupted, please reinstall the system

    Hi

    This is a software only version.

    I was using before the Xpress Pro HD 5.x.

    I have removed it totaly from my system before installing the 2.5.2.

    My new version is not an upgrade one. It use a new dongle that came with the software.

    (My old verion is for sale :-)

    Thanks

    K.   then I'd go for a complete rebuild from the OS up then,  might be residual crap in the registery from the axp installation.

    Re: The application binary file has been corrupted, please reinstall the system

    I am seeing this exact same error and upon launch of Media Composer I get the alert <Exception: A serious error has occurred! It is recommended that you restart the application immediately.>

    As far as I can tell, it does not appear to be an issue with the system software, as in the OS. I have done a clean install of Windows from the ground up, to no avail. I have a brand new PC with no other programs installed except those specifically required (e.g. Quicktime 7.1 and Window Media Runtimes). I have done a reformat of the hard drive too... again I have a new, clean system and have rebuilt the installation twice following Avid specs exactly. I have also tried 2.5.2 and 2.5.3 and have downloaded each twice to be sure there are no corruptions in the files. I have also run diagnostic utilities on the computer... no probs found anywhere in the hardware or in Windows XP.

    I would think it most likely this is an Avid software hiccup. My best guess is that some change in the Avid software or the system settings is needed, as yet uncovered by Avid. But do not reinstall you whole system from the ground up! My experience is that a full rebuild really will not help this issue.

    I am quite familiar with the Meridian Avids and but only recently got the software only Media Composer for PC. Does this error occur with versions 2.5.1 or 2.5? I am wondering if it may be best to regress to one of those versions until Avid provides more info on this one...?

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Re: The application binary file has been corrupted, please reinstall the system

    A follow up to my last post:

    I found a thread elsewhere on the Avid forums which may be relevant...

    http://www.avid.com/exchange/forums/thread/111550.aspx

    I think this may be to do with my ATI graphics card.

    The frustrating thing is, when I ordered my copy of Media Composer, my HP nx9600 was not only specifically qualified by Avid, I think it was pretty much the only notebook Avid qualified for HD. In between placing the order and actually getting delivery and setting it all up, it seems like Avid the specs really needed are different and the ATI card in the nx9600 cannot do the job.

    Grrrrrrrrr! I specifically bought this PC because it was listed as qualified!

    I am not happy..... In fact, this is very uncool. Avid announced this product and stated the hardware recommendations. I feel there is an obligation for Avid to continue to support the hardware initially approved at least for the life of the 2.5.x releases.

    Solution: The application binary file has been corrupted, please reinstall the system

    Big Smile [:D]
    Doc Avid:

    K.   then I'd go for a complete rebuild from the OS up then,  might be residual crap in the registery from the axp installation.

    JDS

    No no and again no! Here is the real solution. Big Smile [:D]

    Firstly the error message <The application binary has been corrupted. Please renstall the system.>

    The Avid Media Composer does not like the bins created under Avid Xpress Pro. Sure it is smart to create a new project and new user settings (and clean site settings, delete msm files etc...)  but the REAL trick here is make completely new bins with slightly different names. e.g. for an old bin called <main footage> make a new bin called somethiing like <main footage bin>. Do this for all your bins. Move the clips and sequences out of the old bins and into the new ones, then delete the old. The error message will be cured. Wink [;)]

    Personally, I was also getting an error message on launch of MC saying <Exception: A serious error has occurred! It is recommended that you restart the application immediately.>. The problem here is that Avid is moving to a different type of graphics architecture which uses a different method of video overlay. The bottom line is that while I am using an HP Compaq nx9600 notebook (Avid qualified and recommended (and supposedly supported Angry [:@]) at the time of writing) however there is something about the way the ATI X600 graphics card inside handles things that bumps up against the latest Avid software. But there is a solution. Yea! Firstly, Launch Media Composer while holding down the L and O keys. This puts the Avid software into legacy overlay mode, making it compatible with the ATI card. There will be no error message. Once up, open the console and enter

    legacyoverlay on

    This will cause the setting to be retained for subsequent sessions and the error will continue to be gone.

    The ATI card in my notebook is non-upgradeable. But if you run into this one on an upgradeable PC and you do later install one of the recommended nVidia cards, you will just need to take another trip to the console and type

    legacyoverlay off

    Before I found these fixes out I did yet another rebuild of my OS from the ground up. Didn't help a smidge. Hey, Doc Avid, don't you treat me! You gotta get the prescription right my friend. If you are going to throw out random suggestions, stick with the basics, like rebuilding settings files. Don't suggest tearing down the house unless you know what you are talking about. please! (Sorry for coming on a little strong here. I do not mean to be rude. But it is frustrating to follow advice to rebuild your entire OS and then discover that had no connection with the issue) Stick out tongue [:P]

    Re: Solution: The application binary file has been corrupted, please reinstall the system

    It works!
    Thanks,

    I remember having a similar problem when using the schools labs on occasion, it would ask you if you wanted to repair the bins when you would bring in an old xpress project...

    But this works,
    Thanks!

    Hi

    This also worked a treat for me. I opened bins from an Xpress Pro 5.8 project & got this message too. After making new bins & shifting everything into them & deleting old ones, everything is fine. Thanks.
