Default Pro Tools 12 crashes at launch after restoring

Hoping you gurus can help me out.

I have been running Pro Tools 12 on my Late 2011 MacBook Pro for quite awhile but purchased a used Mac Pro (late 2013, 8 core, 3ghz, 64GB Ram, 1TB SSD) this week. I used the Time Machine backup to restore on to the Mac Pro and everything seemed to be working...except Pro Tools.

It did come up a couple times but crashed quickly when opening sessions. Now it crashes right at launch every time. I have tried holding down N and also SHIFT with no luck.

I did rename my Mac Pro so the systems have different names (in System Preferences/Sharing). But I was alarmed to see it listed as my MacBook Pro in the iLok License Manager. Could this be a system name conflict? My iLok is on the thumb drive and I figured as long as it was plugged in that I would be able to run Pro Tools on the Mac Pro just as I had on the MacBook Pro.

Any ideas? I am working against the clock here. Thank you so much in advance for any assistance you can offer.

I'm not sure about the name issue - but it could be problem. Restoring from Time Machine to another computer can be dicey at times and may be causing problems with Pro Tools. I would try a clean uninstall/reinstall of Pro Tools. When all else fails, try reinstalling the OS.
