Default Re: PT 11.1.3 Crashing On Loading - Potential Plug-In Issues

Hey Guys,

I experienced this issue this morning. I use my system professionally and being down for even half a day is a real problem.

I purchased an ASC and while I was on the call I mentioned I had changed the name of my Internal Drive on my MacPro to Studio 8. I also happen to have an External drive I track all sessions to called Studio 8.

Well, apparently that was the issue for me. When I changed the name back to Macintosh HD for my Internal drive, everything launched perfectly.

May not be the exact same issue, but perhaps you have duplicate drives with the same name, or duplicate folders that are confusing the program upon launch.

Good luck!

Thanks Studio 8!
I had the same issue. I noticed after reading your post that I had a USB-drive with the same title as my hdd. Renamed it and problem gone.

Namely on my USB drive that I use for Time Machine I also have a partition on which I occasionally dump the contents of my MacBook Pro.

I sad: "... well it couldn't be, could it?" Not only it could have been, IT WAS. After ejecting the drive PT 11 mounted, obviously not looking for stuff on the wrong drive anymore. By the way, the PT 10 didn't care about this and worked just fine. Go figure.

To PT Users,

Similar Issue with version 2018.3.0 Pro Tools HD this morning.
Just removed a usb pen drive I had inserted into my Mac before startup
relaunched the PT software which worked fine for me.
