Quick Start - "Blocked Plug-In"
Hello, I was hoping somebody else would have an answer to my issue.

I bought Avid Recording Studio for my gf who is running a mac OSX 10.6.8 (updated with all of the latest software fixes and security updates).

I installed the program Avid Pro Tool Se 8.0.3 onto her computer and when I tried to boot it up, it loads up the Quick Start which is completely blank and states in the direct center of the window "Blocked Plug-In".

After searching forums for a little bit I read that patch 003 should fix all known issues. So I downloaded the update and it did not resolve my issue. I double checked her firewall and other applications that might block the program (thinking it's malicious) but her firewall is down and there is nothing running that would block it.

Has anyone else had this same issue?

Is there a fix for this issue? And what might cause this?

If you haven't done already maybe try this below and let us know what the result is...

Installation Notes
It is not necessary to install previous patches; Patch 003 will update Pro Tools SE v8.0.3 without any patch, or with Patch 001 or 002.

If you encounter problems installing the update, you may need to do the following:

Uninstall Pro Tools SE using the Uninstall Pro Tools application located here:
Applications/Digidesign/Pro Tools/Pro Tools Utilities

Install Pro Tools SE 8.0.3 from your installation DVD
Install Pro Tools SE 8.0.3 Patch 003

Also more SE help and the 003 patch can be found here... http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=...25fd69470b3dc1

Still didn't work. Is there another way?

Just a shot in the dark, I don't know if this will help or not...

Do you have the Flash Player installed? Not sure about Mac OS 10.6, but it shows up in system preferences in OS 10.8.

Anyway, you can download it from here:

It may be that quick start is using Flash, and can't find the Flash plug-in to run the app.

Or not, but give it a try.
