Default Re: Create, open and Save Pro Tools Session Issue

I'm experiencing a similar problem and get the same permissions denied message, even after switching to AFP. I'm using Pro Tools 2018.4 with OS High Sierra on a single computer, and no peripherals or other devices connected. It will not let me create a new file in the same location where my old files were stored previously, which was under Macintosh hd/applications/avid/protools. When I first tried creating a new file, I noticed in the location bar at the bottom of the startup dashboard that it was being saved to a new location, somewhere in Documents and it would save the session in that location. (on a side note, in case it matters, because of other related software I'm trying to get to work in protools, I recently went to PT set-up/preferences/operation and noticed that the location for User Media and Settings was all set to various location under Documents, but don't know if that's normal or not). Anyway, I switched the location on the PT startup dashboard to the above mentioned applications/avid/protools because I wanted all my sessions in one location, the location where they used to automatically be saved, and the problem of permission being denied when trying to create a new session started up immediately thereafter. Since the permissions section was removed from Disc Utility app, I did also tried a couple of work around techniques for resetting permissions but those techniques didn't help--perhaps there's another way. If anyone has further suggestions, I would be grateful. I would very much like to be able to create new files and save them in one spot. If I can't get a solution in this thread, I may have to create a separate thread. Thanks!

Default Re: Create, open and Save Pro Tools Session Issue


I'm bumping this old thread cause I have the very same issue but activating AFP did not do the trick for me.
I have two macbooks, identical, both with Mojave and both with the same setting.
If I try to access the studio mac from the first macbook, it works perfectly.
With the second one, I get the "another user as this session open already..." ecc. I mean, the problem described above.

The only difference is that on the first mac (the working one) there is a Pro Tools 2019 license, on the second one, Pro Tools 2018.4.

Any ideas? what am I missing?
