Smile 'Start' button stopped working (solved)

Searching the FAQs brought no answer, so I came here...

No matter what I do, if I put the cursor on the Start button and left click, nothing happens.
Also, neither space bar or 0 at the keypad has any effect.
All other controls in the transport window are active.

Holding the Start function for 5 seconds makes the 'Stop button' blink briefly....

I'm in the middle of a recording session and clueless.

Worked with PT 5.1/W98 for over 10 years without any complaints, now I got me a brand new PT 10/W7 set and nothing but problems.....

Default Re: 'Start' button stopped working

2 things to check: Dynamic Transport(uncheck it) which I believe is under the Options menu, and see if you accidentally selected Wait for Midi Note.

I get that from time to time, the only solution I have found is just to close down Pro Tools and restart the computer

Thumbs up Re: 'Start' button stopped working

Thank you all for thinking along.

Re-starting, as many as ten times, made no difference.

The dynamic transport was unchecked, and I haven't found a 'Wait for Midi Note' command, so I went on.

I un- and re- installed the program twice and the second time I was lucky...

All is up and running again.
Still I have no clue what corrupted the program in the first place. And why the first re-install did nothing...

I don't do MIDI, all I use are Audix & Neumann mikes.
And a banjo, a mandolin and a guitar.
