Media 100 Crash at launch
on Jul 27, 2011 at 1:46:48 pm

After a 3 year hiatus I have just returned to the Media 100 family. I upgraded to Snow leopard, installed Media 100 V 201 and voila I could open my old projects on our Intel based Mac. The next day it no longer will successfully launch. The only thing I can think of is at one point I launched another application that required the install of Rosetta. Could this be the problem?
I am running 10.6.7
2x3 GHz Dual Core Intel
16 GB 667MHz DDR2
QuickTime player 10 was installed by default with Snow Leopard.

Any help appreciated

No, Rosetta should not matter. What is happening when you open the application?
One thing you can try is to launch the app with the Shift key pressed. This way you avoid opening the last project. If there is a corrupt media file in your project (that gets opened automatically) you maybe can prevent the crash.
Did you upgrade to 10.6.8 in the meantime? There is a bug with Media 100 i media files and 10.6.8; something that Apple broke with the MJPEG-B codec that maybe (hopefully) will get fixed sometime by Apple.

Hi Floh,
It's been a while, Great to see you are still helping out at Creative Cow. When I launch M100 the progress bar gets about half way across (about 4 seconds) then it crashes and I get the Problem Report.
I am sticking with 10.6.7 because I had read about the issue with 10.6.8.
Here is the first part of the very lengthy report in case this helps:

Have you tried deleting the Preferences in User/Library/Preferences/Media100 Suite Preferences.

You can toss the whole folder in the trash.

If this does not work try repairing the permissions with Disc Utility.

Even better run DiscWarrior on your discs.

The splash screen now shows some text of what it's doing during startup; what does that say?

Check your /Library/QuickTime folder for any unusual components. You can move them to someplace else temporarily and launch Media 100 Suite to see if that's the problem.

I ended up re-installing snow Leopard, updating to the 10.6.7 combo and everything seems fine again. If I have to get any updates for other software or new drivers, I will make a list of what I have done and check Media 100 after each update. Thanks everyone for your help and thanks also to Matt from Media 100 who was monitoring the forum and took the time to call me at work. Great customer service. It's good to be back with M100.
