Default ProTools 6.4 unexpectedly quits at startup

Hi all,

I have installed protools 6.4 on OSX10.3.3. I use it with a DIGI002R. At startup time of protools it unexpectedly quits. I dont even get a splash screen. I've tried a clean install of OSX 10.3, updated the system with the latest apple updates (and no other apps), and installed 6.4 version of protools. Before it fails, the 1394 firewire light does not light up. I've attached the crash report below. Also, when i start iTunes 4.5, the firewire light does eluminate for about 7 seconds and then turns off. If i start the digidesign coreaudio setup program, the firewire light eluminates and stays eluminated (until i quit the coreaudio setup program). So it looks like something is wrong with the coreaudio setup/program.

I really hope that this sounds familiar to anyone here, and that somebody can tell me what the cause is and how i can fix this.

Default Re: ProTools 6.4 unexpectedly quits at startup

Go thru all the troubleshoots (trashing prefs, databases) indicated in the sticky thread at the top of each forum, then try it again.

Core Audio is NOT used by Pro Tools, only by other applications to use the Digi hardware. Make sure no other application is launched that is using Core Audio (including setting your Sound control panel to built in hardware) before launching Pro Tools.

Default Re: ProTools 6.4 unexpectedly quits at startup

I think i've followed the steps. Trashing the database, prefs etc. Even when i format my harddrive, reinstall osx 10.3, install the updates, install PT6.4 i get the same result (unexpectedly quit). There are no other apps running.

Default Re: ProTools 6.4 unexpectedly quits at startup

Make sure Classic is not set to Auto Launch on start up.

Make sure your system drive is not set for Journaling. (can be checked in the Disc Utility application)

You could have some bad ram. (OSX is quite picky when it comes to ram)

Take all of the third party ram out of the computer and just leave in the ram that came stock with the system. Then try launching LE.

Create a new administrator user account and do a fresh install of LE in there. See if it runs ok then.

Are you using the developer CHUD Tools? If so, turn off the processor nap function if it’s enabled.

Are you using any type of anti virus software that may be running in the background?
