Question Xpand can't find the Xpand.dat

Hello!

I installed the latest update of Xpand (1.0.3) for ProTools 7.4.2 and now Xpand can't find the Xpand.dat file.
Where can I find it? I have searched with spotlight without finding it.

What to do?

Default Re: Xpand can't find the Xpand.dat

But the problem came when I installed the update, it was working fine before...
Is Xpand a part of the Protools LE 7.4.2? Will it work if I reinstall ProTools?

Have you followed the instructions to relocate the .dat file?

The problem is that I don't know where the .dat file is, I have searched with spotlight and search in Finder without results.

The relocate program needs to be placed in the same folder as the .dat file, how can I place it in the same folder when I don't know where the .dat file is?

It may have been deleted, go to your preferences and see if there is a preference file com.digidesign.xpand.plist - if there is then delete that and then reinstall Xpand. This should be in your user preferences NOT the main preferences.
