"Final Cut Pro wants to make changes" bug??? how do get rid of this???
on Jan 3, 2012 at 2:32:08 pm

For the last few weeks, every time I open Final Cut Pro, I keep getting this window:

"Final Cut Pro wants to make changes" and it asks for my name and password. Even after I type it correctly, FCP7 sometimes totally fails to start. Just hangs there.

Has anyone else ever gotten this message, and what can I do resolve this?

I already trashed prefers, cache, several times, and it didn't help. The window pops up every time I start FCP7.

Thanks very much in advance for any help.

I have never seen, nor heard of, this error. I google it and I get this post.

Is that the EXACT error? Asking for a name and password...man, that sounds like some sort of virus.

Perhaps he's writing or rendering files to the library folder or system folder on the hard drive. That would usually ask that same thing. For example, in Lion, making changes to the Utility folder within the Applications folder is now restricted and you'll have to enter your password to put apps in there.

Hello and thank you both for replying. No, not rendering anything, just trying to open my Final Cut Pro 7 project, nothing more. I get that annoying window every single time I open FCP7 though.

I can't imagine what's causing it. I now wonder if I might not have to totally uninstall and reinstall Final Cut Studio, arrgh!!! I hope not. Will try running disk utility (repair permissions) and hope it fixes it.

ok. do this

Get Info on your media drive (hopefully NOT your startup Mac HD)

In the Get Info window, at the bottom check the box that says "ignore ownership on this volume"


Its bad to do this on the volume that has your OS, but its fine to do it on others.

OK still getting same problem even after running disk utility permissions, verify drive, repair drive, etc.

Here's the window that keeps popping up:

That's an OSX issue...not FCP specific. FCP wants to access something and the OS is wanting you to authenticate that.

Never seen this before. Running LION you say?

That's a message from the OS wanting your system password. It's not FCP wanting a FCP password.

Correct, I'm running Lion 10.7.2.

Is there a way to get OS Lion to stop displaying this window?

Thanks very much in advance.

Hi Nick,

I ran into the same issue today and I am now for the third time re-starting FCP7, Lion states that FCP wants to make changes and needs my password to allow that. I am not allowing it for now.
I have selected "ignore permissions" on my 16 bay RAID where my media lives, my scratch. I already used Disk Warrior on my RAID, but I still get this message. I am about to rebuild directories on my boot drive and see if that helps.
Have you figured it out? Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Ok, I rebuilt directories with Disk Warrior on my boot drive. No changes.
It simply went from working solid to a mind of its own.

OSX 10.7.5 (Lion)
2x2.93Ghz 6 -core Intel Xeon
48GB RAM
FCP 7.0.3
The same message appears at login:

"Final Cut Pro wants to make changes. Type your password to allow this."

Any info on this will be highly appreciated...client work waiting and all. Especially from you Nick...
Thanks.

I look forward to finishing this feature that keeps me tied to FCP7 until mid 2014 so I can jump into FCPX. Yes, I do. FCP7 reminds me of my senile grandfather... all that love...upside down.
And no, I will not run both on this mac. I won't look back.
