    Pancenter,

     

    Ive tried app zapper but that hasnt worked either, what do i have to remove exactly? for a full uninstall.


    Don't really know.

     

    I would use a simple search app like EasyFind (hate spotlight) and search on the name of the application "Logic Pro" and "Logic Studio" and see what shows up.  Seacrhing on "Logic" is not a good idea as there are several files related to OSX.

     

    Do you have a program that can flush OSX caches?

    Just want to add my voice to this one - I'm having exactly the same issue - a complete clean OS reinstall is not an option withouth spending days pulling together all my apps, plugins, registrations and authorisations. I've been a logic user for 20years and never had a problem like this that basically stopped it from working.

     

    be very interested to see how this works out, my next plan is to create a 2nd boot parition clean and install Logic on that see how it goes. - not ideal at all.

     

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    I'm having a similar problem

    Logic 9.1.5     OS 10.68       imac Intel Core 2 duo 2.66

     

    Logic has been quitting unexpectedly usually while trying to close but at other random times as well.

    I have the newest version of the software linked above. I also just installed Pro Tools 9 with the latest Core audio if that could have any effect on this problem. I've saved a script of one of the crashes if that would be helpful.

    Logic up to this point had alwayys been extremely stable almost never crashing.

     

    If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.

     

    Thanks

    Exact same 10.6.8 behavior as weaver123 here as well: 

     

    • Logic 9.1.5 opens and plays.  Can not close open project, save, save as or quit.

     

    Spent a few hours with Apple pro tech support.  Tried:

    1) Deleting all logic-related prefs.

    2) reinstallling Logic 9, running updaters. (FWIW 9.0 has the same issues)

    3) running Logic on a new user account.

    4) removing all third-party VST and AU plug-ins.

     

    Pro support is up-to-date.

     

    Their advice was to wipe the drive and start over.(!).

     

    FWIW: Mainstage works as expected. Logic 7 (on same mac) behaves the same as Logic 9.xx

     

    Quesion:  Is anyone_successfully_using Logic 9.1.5 and OS 10.6.8?

    Did anyone follow the support link advice?

     

    Resolution

    This can happen if there is an issue with the ProKit framework. To resolve the issue:

    1. Place the file /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ProKit.framework in the trash. Enter an administrator password when requested.
    2. Install ProKit 7.0 from this link.

    Thank you Pancenter!

     

    After reinstalling Logic and all sorts of other things over the last couple of days, it all works now...

    Having same problem.  Recently reinstalled Logic 9 Studio and updated leopard, now logic won't close.  The arrange page opens up but unable to close the page, keep hitting the close key until it finally force quits...

     

    Has anyone got a solution please.

     

    Thanks.

    Euh... have you tried the one only four posts up, or one down, in this thread? Or have you posted without looking?

    Eriksimon,

     

    Euh....yes I've looked through this whole site trying to find the answer and I've placed prokit it in the trash, clicked on the new link for prokit and logic still doesn't close.  I keep pressing the close file tab...until it force closes.

    Placing it in the trash is not enough. You need to also empty the trash and you need to restart your Mac, then install the new Prokit.

    Thank you. I wiill do that once I return from work this evening.  Once thing  I did notice though when placing it in the trash the message said something like ' this is a binary application and cannot be placed in trash...' although looking in the trash it's there, but still in the folder...strange. Is that because the trash isn't emptied or because I just can't move it?

     

    Anyhow, I will give it a go this evening,

     

    I will let you know.
