    protools first nightmare

    Hello everyone,

    Just bbought forcusrite scarlet, and I was happy to find there is protools first in the package. Protools was my first choice several years ago then i switched to cubase. It is good to be back to protools i think. I am really excited. 

    After i installed everything and ilok authorization. I can't wait to open it. The problem is i can't go any futher than creating a project page, although it tells me i have zero projects, but at the same time, it continued to tell me i reach the maximum projects. I searched the internet for answers, I found the posts about this problem back to 2015 or even earlier. It is 2018 now, i still got this problem. I have to uninstall all of them. It is just a time waster. Finally when i want to unstall protools first itself, it is greyed out. I counldn't uninstall it. I am just amazed by this company! Good luck!

    Not very wise posting your email address on an open forum, I would have thought.
