Default Protools Crashes at Launch (Every Time)

ProTools begins to start up normally, plug-ins begin to load, but once it gets to DigiRewire.dpm it pauses and then quits. I've tried to trouble-shoot on my own, reading the forums and looking for all possible fixes. I started by trashing all the usual ProTools preferences (com.digidesign.plist, DAE Prefs folder, Pro Tools preferences, DigiSetup.OSX, Digidesign Database Folders, etc.) and repairing disk permissions. I've run the pre-binding script, also tried using Applejack in single user mode. I've run the un-install utility in the protools folder and re-installed Protools 8. As a last resort, I backed up my system using SuperDuper and performed a clean install of Mac OS X 10.5.5 (combined update). But alas, I am still having the same issue. I am completely stumped. Please tell me I've missed something really obvious.

I would start by removing that file (DigiRewire.dpm) along with its mate(same name but different extension) from the plugins folder. Also, update the Pace drivers.

Do you have ANY rewire client applications installed on your machine (like melodyne, reason, live etc..) from the ignition pack or elsewhere? If so, one or more of those are most likely not the leopard compatible versions and causing your issue.

The older version of Melodyne essential that comes in the ignition pack 2 would cause this until updating to the newest version (You would also notice other music applications/rewire hosts like garage band either crashing or locking up at launch too.)

check this page for updates:
If you don't have it backed up, do you really have it?
