Windows 7: Pro Tools on Windows 7

13 Jun 2010   #21

Windows 7 32 bit, Windows 7 64 bit, Windows Vista 32 bit all Ultimate

You need to go into your MyDigi account, now called MyAvid account, and download the full version of 8.0.3. Then download the 8.0.4b 64 bit Windows 7 drivers from the Avid web site. Follow the instructions posted.

Also right click the install icon and choose Run As Administrator when installing.

Windows 7/10 64 bit

I have Sonar (8.5.3 Pro Ed) and thought I wanted to try Pro Tools, just to see what it was like since I got an M Audio Fast Track Ultra 8R, which is compatible with Pro Tools 8. I got a special 30 day trial "MP" edition but after looking at some of the many problems, I'm not going to even try it and just stay with Sonar. Sonar works well with Win 7 64 bit.

Windows 7 64bit
trying to get 7.4LE to run on Win7

I know this topic is way old but its the first one that pops up when I search for my problem so hopefully someone will reply.

I've been searching for about a week as to how to solve my problem with no real headway as to what to do. I am trying to run Pro Tools 7.4LE on my new windows 7 laptop. When I do the install there is an error that comes up (I dont remember what it is for sure) but when I close the error out everything finishes installing fine. then I go and try to start up the program and it asks me to jack in my hardware. I do. then my loading screen freezes at the 'DAE Loading' point. Eventually when i try to shut the program down I get a blue screen of death and the pc wants to boot up in safe mode.

First question is why exactly is this happening? and of course the second is how can I fix it? I dont want to have to change a registry key in IE8 unless I have to, or spend another $300 on a newer version of Pro Tools unless I know that is the only way to fix my issue.

thanks in advance.

You can not uninstall IE 8 from Windows 7.

It is part of the OS.

EU version it appears so. EU court case.
Vaderzer0 may have that version.

Not on this side of the pond. All you can do is disable it. No uninstaller and trying to delete through registry trashes the entire OS.
It has been tried.

Good to know! Thanks Carbon6.

I looked at his profile appears he lives on this side of the pond.

Windows 7 64bit

I ended up posting on the Avid forums and got a few answers, I ended up realizing that I had the opportunity to upgrade my software for free. I never registered it in the first place and found out that if you purchased 7.4 after Oct of '08 they let you upgrade to 8 for free. Thanks for your guys' help here though.
