    Is anyone running avid with an AMD Ryzen 5950x processor?

    Trying to run media composer on a ryzen 5950x. Hangs at reading user was wondering if anyone is able to run on the 5950x. I realize that avid only qualified the threadripper.

     

    Thanks.

    It freezes at loading user on mine. Tried new user both avid and os. Re-installed media composer still can't get it to fully launch.

    I've been running my Avid on a completely unqualified Ryzen and GTX setup for years without issues. Chances are there's something wrong on a software level. What OS are you running? Which version of Avid Media Composer? As Pat says: Permissions? running under an admin account?

    No. It's a brand new system. Was going to build a threadripper system but availability and being a couple years old thought I could try 5950x.

    Sometimes Avid can be buggy. So wait half an hour.

     

    But I think that's not the problem.

    You are running a Asus Rog Crosshair VIII. I assume that you installed all drivers for the system. Check if a program called Sonic is installed.

    I had the problem with my Asus Threadripper Mainboard. The audio driver automatically installed it and couldn't deselect it. Uninstall the driver and let Windows Update find the audio driver.

    Uninslled Sonic studio and Sonic Radar and that fixed the problem. Thank you so much!
