    First can you add your specifications to your profile.  Click on your name in the right corner then edit profile and add spec's. Helps us help you.

    Second.......I would delete the MCState files.

    The MCState setting files can be found in two places:

    • the main Settings folder in the Media Composer application folder
    • in each individual User Settings folder

    The MCState found in the Settings folder remembers what user and projects were active the last time the application was in use. It also contains certain Console commands, such as Disble3D and in version 7.x, it remembers which video format was chosen for the 3D hardware.

    The MCState in the Users folder contains window views for each user. For example, a source or record window that is stretched or a particular timline view is saved in this file. It is necessary at times when troubleshooting to delete these files and have Media Composer rebuild them as they can become corrupt.

    Where are the user settings stored? locally or on networked storage?

    user settings are stored locally.It's happening while launching the media composer with interplay/isis connected mode.Without it, it's launching in a good way.
