Default Refreshed OS, PT doesn't launch-

Hey Guys-

I should know how to solve this.....

My OS (10.4.11) was acting up, so I refreshed it. That means, I used the DVDs and reloaded Tiger, then updated to get back to 10.4.11.

Everything came back to normal pretty easily, except for Pro Tools. Can't launch, have no core audio driver for iTunes.

The program is still in the Applications folder, still on the dock, but the Apple OS does not want to play along.

Any suggestions?

Thanks--

PC

I'm afraid that you'll need to reinstall PT as some OS level files will have been overwritten.

Oh boy. I think I've screwed the pooch here. I believe I upgraded to PTle7 from PTle6 by downloading it. I found a disc I had burned and labeled "PT 7 Installer", but I must have screwed it up, or the disc is bad, because my computer sees nothing on the disc.

Can anyone from Digi help me here? Maybe there is some sneaky way for me to get PT to recognize my program that is already in my computer....

If you purchased and/or registered PT7, then you should be able to download the installer from your Digistore or MyDigi accounts.

Damnit. Thanks for the input, Phil. I've logged on to my account at the Digi site, and have been pulling my hair out trying to find the download. I think I may have found it, but the site does not accept my authorization code from my 002r manual.

I would have thought that the Digi site would have a record of my downloads. I haven't yet seen proof of that, other than when I bought Strike earlier last year.

Your Digistore account is separate and different from MyDigi. Have you looked there?

Yeah, I went to MyDigi. I didn't communicate that very well. Under my order history it lists some orders from the past years, but doesn't describe them all that much, and nothing on that list is a link to be followed up on.

I would love to reinstall this thing and get going.

Thanks again for your input-

Aha!!!!!!!

The Digistore appears to be the key! I believe I am currently downloading LE7.

Happy New Year!!

Merry Christmas you old savings and loan!!

I did not remember that the store kept a profile for your purchases, I guess I got the idea that Mydigi did all of that.

Good times ahead, me thinks-

Thanks again
