    MC 2018.8 Problems saving Bins from older Version: Assertion failed

    Hi there,

    we're having some huge problems with Media Composer 2018.8.

    We have around 20 edit suites and are upgrading our whole facility from 8.4.5 to 2018.8. This takes quite a while. Unfortunately a lot of bins created in 8.4.5 raise an error in 2018.8 after you changed something inside the bin and then closing / saving it. The error is:

    Assertion failed: iter != sWindowList.end ()

    File s:\ppg\mediacomposer\media_composer\mcwindowsmenuutils.cpp, Line:141

    The bins do not save and we cannot close them. Any suggestions here? We cannot migrate huge projects by creating a new project in 2018.8 and duplicate every content to a new bin. We need to work simultaneously on 2018.8 and 8.4.5.

    Beste wishes

    Hi Marianna

     

    We just started testing this verison today and got the same errors as described above.

     

    Are there any notes from avid regarding a fix for this or at least a work around?

     

    Thanks

    A shot in the dark: what if You trash the project settings? Make a backup copy first, just in case. Also, are You carrying over user settings from MC 8.4.5 to MC 18.8? If yes try with fresh new user settings instead.

    Re: MC 2018.8 Problems saving Bins from older Version: Assertion failed

    I tested both. I created a new project on 2018.8 and just took some bins from the 8.4.5 project. Happens there too. Also 2018.8-user-settings are causing this error....
