I face the following problem. Every time I start the Avid Media Composer, there comes the following information:
"Exception: FILE_OTHER, filename: C: \ Users \ (Your Windows User Name) \ Documents \ Avid Projects \"
I can then click on "More", nor woraif get this note:
"Exception: Sys_Error, status: 0, msg: The operation completed successfully"
I can be so much click "OK" as I want, but always comes back this regard. I have no access to Avid, and it can not even connect via the normal way, but must do it via Task Manager "with violence".
That always encounter this error, is that I have in my Windows user an umlaut. And yes based Avid now plays in English and opens up with the German special difficulty. I have a test basis synonymous ever seen a new Windows user account created () without the umlaut, which I was able to successfully start synonymous Avid. But on my calculator does not want an extra Avid registered customer and also I want to let my user name synonymous as it is. The comic is also so that the work has some times. Then, Avid has recognized this umlaut and it simply turned into another character and an extra user-created folders in the Windows user directory. But that was my system before reinstalling.
My question is: Is there any file in the Avid folder, which can be as easy to open with the editor to change where the Avid Users folder path?? Then I would in effect create a separate folder () without umlauts.
Schonmal I thank you for your help!

I know FILE_OTHER otherwise only of other errors, such as lack of media files. (This is not the "Media Offline" meant, which states that Avid expects that there are missing files. FILE_OTHER means rather that was somewhat unexpected manner not found)
If it actually s.deinem Windows-profile names are: The simplest would be - as you already said - your projects and user settings in a different folders. Then you invite your settings and the projects just out of there. The folder for projects you can choose yes always free. The User Settings erstmal not.
To load the user settings of anywhere else in, you can either re-Avid istallieren and choose the path for the user data during installation, or you change this path in the registry from manual. The Media Composer 3.0 is this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Avid Technology \ Avid Media Composer \ 3.0 Data Location "=" C: \ Documents and Settings \ \ All Users \ \ Application Data \ Avid Media Composer
Here you change the value for "Data Location" from the folder from which you want to load your settings and projects in the future and save. Do not forget: Using a double backslashes. The value could look like this:
Data Location "=" D: \ \ ExtraDatenOrdnerFuerAvid
Project data should be for security reasons anyway Not always save on a system disk, the next system crash is determined.
But I know that Avid internal always enjoyed working with the Windows user name, eg in the preparation of titles with the Title Tool. If all else fails, you'll probably need to change your Windows user name ... if it's this mistake at all ...
