Can't boot into MC
on Jun 2, 2009 at 4:28:14 am

Hey guys, I'm getting this error message when I try to boot into MC.

LogFile_ForMC::LogFile_ForMC() Error [-16777178] unable to: new:LogFile->OpenFile() failed.

And MC won't open. I've gotten around it once or twice by repairing permissions. (I'm on a MacPro 2.66) And once by just shutting down and restarting (a few times in a row as I recall). This time I'm wondering if perhaps there's something I can permanently fix to do away with this issue for good. Something at the Avid level I can fix? I've gone to the Avid Forum over at Avid, but can't remember my password so I thought I'd try here while I wait for them to send me a new one. Thanks.

Have you tried a full unisntall and reinstall?

In fact I would run the uninstaller scripts. Rename the Media Composer folder to xMedia Composer, and reinstall. Baby with the bath water approach, but I agree with Michael.

Hey,

I am getting the same message. Tried uninstall and reinstall of MC 3.5.1 and ProTools 8.0cs3. I'll try it with renaming then Media Composer folder.

Were you able to resolve the problem?

Thanks,
Todd

It still pops up occasionally, and I have to shut down, restart, sometimes repair permissions - I don't know, I just try a few different things, and then I can get back into the program. As soon as I'm done with the project I'm working on I'm just going to wipe the darn drive clean and reinstall everything. I think that should fix this for good.
Keep me posted, and good luck. - Paul
