    Question Avid Free DV Starting problem

    Hi all, I just installed Avid Free DV, seeing as how they are no longer going to be offering it soon...

    Anyway, I just got it installed and I tried to run it and I get this error:



    Something to do with initializing sound or something?

    Thanks,

    LC

    EDIT: Here's the reports from some of the fatal error logs:

    No idea what that is exactly but it's definitely attributed to DirectX and so I'd recommend running the dxdiag utility which comes with all DirectX installs. That may throw up something more meaningful, or at worst will give you a log you can feed back into the Avid forums to see if someone there can help
