    Media Composer First will not fully load Exception hangs bootup.

    Hi all

    My name is Pep this is my first post I have had a search through post and also have googled.I am trying to get avid media composer first installed and running. I am actually a sound designer (Protools) but trying to learn AMCF. 

     

    Any how I am running a P.C windows 10 pro, I have installed a couple of version on MCF and none of them fully load up although it goes for the most part loading plugins etc... but then stops with an exception and hangs "Exception: No compressed data format found for specified VCID and video format".

     

    Any advice would be appreciated as I cant seem to get it to work also I am flagged with a warning to install windows media player but I am Windows 10???

    I do have a few optimization in windows setup up for protools Ultimate like cpu states turned off etc... but I cant figure it out. Any advice for a newbie would be sincerley appreciated. Screen shot below.

    Hi Petris,

      Taken from MC|First Readme.

     

    Compatibility with Pro Tools - General Co-Installation Notes

    Pro Tools refers to Pro Tools | First, Pro Tools, and Pro Tools | Ultimate.
    •You must uninstall all older versions of Media Composer | First or Pro Tools before
    installing newer versions.
    •You cannot launch both applications at the same time.
    •If you run into any issues, uninstall both applications and reinstall Pro Tools first, and then
    reinstall Media Composer | First.
    •When you uninstall Pro Tools, choose to uninstall just the application and not the audio
    drivers or the editing application no longer sees the devices.
