I have to enable onboard audio for 8.0.4 to start !?
 
Since upgrading to 8.0.4 (+cs2), i have to enable my integrated soundcard (in the BIOS) in order to be able to use Pro Tools. Otherwise i get a "Pro Tools is unable to reacquire the hardware because it is in use by another application (...)" message when i launch Pro Tools.
With the 8.0.4 driver, 002r is the default audio peripheral for windows. I changed that to "AC Realtech something" in the windows (XP) control panel and PT would launch. But I thought we were supposed to disable onboard audio ?

Kind of odd. I know w the eleven rack you must have it on but not the 002. Are you disabling it in the bios or device manager? Or somewhere else?

FWIW, I have always had my onboard audio enabled. but I have also preferred to have all non-Pro Tools audio handled by the onboard(it avoids any hardware conflicts). Whenever I want to hear other sounds, I select my motherboard optical output on a Presonus Central Station. Back a few years, I would run the analog out from the motherboard to the AUX/ALT inputs of my 002/003 and push a button. The optical path sounds way better though.

Cheers guitardom, you pointed me in the right direction.
For some reason, the ELeven rack driver was installed during the 8.0.4 update.
i uninstalled it and disabled the onboard audio in the bios, and voilà, it now works as it did before the update.
