    Priority Exception

    Hi,

    Trying to run Composer First on a Mac Mini, updated to High Sierra, 8 gb memory. When I try to bring up the program, keep getting this message: "Exception: std:: exception, what: Failed to change priority."

    Not able to get into program because of this. Can anyone advise? Thanks!

    Dan

    Re: Priority Exception

    Hello,

    same here on a 2009 Mac Pro 3,1. I started the application from a shell window to see more output:

     

    Mac-Pro:MacOS rmuetze$ ./AvidMediaComposer

    Tried with a clean user profile to no avail. I also tried a complete uninstall and re-install with latest updates. OS version is 10.13.4, 12 GB of RAM, SSD boot drive for the OS and a software RAID for data. Any help much appreciated.

     

    Best regards

    Re: Priority Exception

    First Mac OS X 10.13.4 was not approved by avid.  We have seen some issues with the OS and how it relates to several things such as security etc. that have us doing more testing so that could be the issue.

    Did all of you check the computer spcifications for MC | First ? 

    Basics....  

    Long winded info. http://resources.avid.com/supportfiles/attach/Mac_Current_CPU_Specifications.pdf So for example....  Mac mini 2.6/2.8GHz dual core Intel i5 or 3.0 Ghz dual core i7 Late 2014 is not supported....  its an i5 first of all and not beefy enough to handle the tasks it needs too. Check it out first before you forge ahead Marianna
