Albee1952, I think we might be talking about different things? I had trouble with the last window update. The pro tools 8.0.5 update had been going fine.

all good I have the Creators update here and all is well. I was only referring to the 8.0.5 update and whether it was actually a must. setting Windows to NOT use the interface has always been a good idea, even in those cases where it wasn't a "must"

Glad you both are able to make music, but you are missing some awesome features! Clip Gain in PT10 was a game changer, and track freeze/commit since 12.4 is an even bigger game changer

Yep, I think a second hand pro tools 10 is a good idea. Would be nice not to be tied to the old hardware too!

Thanks Tiberius, it worked for me like a charm. I was just getting ready to get rid of my old Mbox pro that didn’t work but it still works as a dongle for ProTools eight LE. This makes up for ProTools first not working at all on my system . You have saved the day

What interface are you using with it? I've got an MBox2 but AFAIK there are no drivers available.

I have been running 8.05 LE with an Mbox 2 for years on Windows 7 with various PCs. I updated one PC recently to Windows 10 via Microsoft's free upgrade webpage and Pro Tools seems to be working absolutely fine. I'm not sure I would be keen to try it with a clean install of Windows 10 though.
