    Hello All,
    My system has been running fine. I have FCP X and FCS 3.0 installed. I use both tcp x and tcp 7.0.3.
    For some reason, FCP 7 will no longer launch. I have tried:
    deleting preferences, and re-installing, and copying working app from backup disk.
    All to no avail. If I boot off the backup disk – FCP 7 launches fine!

    I have tried reformatting the hard disk, and copying from my backup disk using Carbon Copy Cloner.
    The clone boots fine, and I can launch FCP 7 from it.

    Any ideas here? I do not want to reformat, and then reload everything from scratch.
    Should I try a different disk??

    Thanks for great info on this forum,

    what have you done anything to your system lately?
    updated something?
    installed something?

    hello,

    Updated flash player, and added adobe reader. But did the same thing on the backup disk
    But nothing else. Also Java was updated, but I uninstalled it, and downgraded to 1.6 jdk
