Exception: MSM: No directory Specified_3
Now let's travel back in time and try to find out what caused this nonsense: I came in to the office today to hear the four words everyone in tech fields loves to hear: The power went out.
After booting ye olde Avid, I found that every time it got to the "initializing media manager" stage, it would crash out with the above two clickyboxes. Of course, you can't click either one of them, so you have to manually force quit out of the crash. Hilarious.
What does this mean? Well, I tried a bunch of stuff. I deleted site settings. Nope. I deleted the databases on my mounted drives. Nope. I deleted the database on my local drive. Nope. I deleted the media on my local drive. Nope. I cleared the shared attic, deleted shared users, reset the computer, reset the PRAM, and tried mounting up with no drives mounted whatsoever, and no Avid MediaFiles folders in the root directory of the boot drive. All to no fucking avail.
Which is when I remembered that there's another, goddamn hidden media files folder. It's located at:
BootDrive / Applications / Avid Media Composer / SupportingFiles / Avid_MediaFiles
Oh yeah, thanks Avid, that was easy to fucking find. God damn Avid.
I went into there and deleted the two database files:
God damn I hate Avid.
