Did you trash both Preference files?
Instead of downloading it try copying it across from your laptop.

Use FCS Remover to remove all the apps from FCPX and FCS. Then download again. Moving the apps around I fear has screwed things up.

But that didn't work. It did the same thing. It loads and then stops at "Loading Compressor Support".

I've used FCS to remove FCPX and FC7 redownloaded FCPX from the App store and still get the same thing. It stops loading after "Loading Compressor Support". The Beachball just spins and then my entire computer freezes up. There must be something going on with my Hardrive. But everything seems to check out alright. Can't figure it out.

You have got both apps on the same Hard drive but have you installed them correctly?
One of them must be in its own separate folder in the Applications folder.
Normally the FCS apps should be in a folder called Final Cut Studio.
The middle and end section of this article show you how

Appreciate your help Ian and others. I have since uninstalled FCS and reinstalled FCXP only to get the same thing. Loading FCXP stalls at "Looking for Compressor Support". When I first downloaded FCXP from the App store I didn't notice that FCS was being placed in it's own folder. It's not something I did manually. Although moved into it's own folder with FCXP on the same drive. I was not able to open FCS apps. They would load and then "quit unexpectantly". They opened just fine before I downloaded FCXP. Do I need to purchase Compressor so that FCXP recognizes it? It seems this is where it stalls. It doesn't explain however why my computer "FREEZES" while doing this. I am in the process of re-installing Lion to see if this helps, otherwise I am at a complete loss.

Have you read in the instructions that important bit that says open Motion 4 and then close it before trying to open any other app?
You do not need to buyCompressor.

Happy to report I finally have FCPX on my MacPro Desktop and so far no issues. I don't know if re-installing Lion did the trick or the fact that I forgot I had a copy of FCS on my Storage Drive. So, I am not sure if originally after deleting FCS that FCPX wouldn't load because of the copy of FCS on another drive. I did use FCS remover to remove those files and then downloaded FCPX again from the APP store and it opened without issues. I would like to re-install FCS because of the other APPS, like DVD Studio Pro and Sound Track Pro but hesitant. I don't want to deal with more issues.
