FCP 7 won't open
on Sep 2, 2014 at 7:59:14 pm

Hey there,

I'm suddenly having an issue where FCP 7 will not open. It will start to, but then after a few seconds, it just dies. I've tried deleting the file, uninstalling and reinstalling FCP and none of these have worked at all. Any suggestions out there? I'm on
0S 10.7.5, with 2 x 2.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors.

How about repairing the permissions in the OS?

There are more than one preference files to trash. The easy way is with preference manger, you can download it here.

I suddenly cannot open FCP 7 as well after having it work for over 2 years without any system updates. It will go through all the normal starting dialog and then after it asks for the default hardware which I can set to DV, Blackmagic, etc, I get the spinning ball and then under Force Quit it says (Not Responding)


Deleted all preferences by hand and with Preference Manager
Repaired Preferences
Zapped PRAM
Uninstalled with FCS Remover
Tried 7.0 without updating (no go)
Deleted everything again with FCS Remover
Re-installed, then updated to 7.0.3
It will re-do the profile for RT and then crash

System: OSX 10.8.5

Processor Speed: 2.3 GHz

The only thing I've installed since I used it last was DaVinci Resolve Lite. Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
