'Hardware is in use by another application' error -1133 for m-box

Hello, I am trying to install pro-tools 6.1.1 with an original m-box and that is the error I get. I can't find what other application is supposedly using the digidesign hardware. Anyone have any answers?
Thank you
Steve

    Thank you. I tried reinstalling making sure the mbox was not attached to the computer. It still has the same error. I am loading actually 6.2 onto a Mac G4 laptop.
    Appreciate your suggestion. Any other ideas?
    1 thing I read was that possible there was something running in the background that was using the coreaudio driver but I have not been able to find anything else running, especially that would use digidesigns core audio drivers.
    ??? I want to record!



  • sfulton Jun 22, 2008

    I completely uninstaled the program and reinstalled it and still the same error. I did not individually uninstall the coreaudio driver though? I wonder if I would need to do that as well as the program?
    Thanks for tryin.

Make sure the box isn't connected to the computer while you are installing the software.

    If you can disable the coreaudio driver and reinstall it again that might work. There could be an issue with the setup since that is an audio device as well.



    I don't do much with Macs unless its a printer/network install. Only IPods,

    Id give it a shot. It could be an audio device conflict going on.

My leptop acer 4720zg physical dumping error


1) Examine the “System” and “Application” logs in Event Viewer for other recent errors that might give further clues. To do this, launch > Eventvwr.msc from a Run box; or open “Administrative Tools” in the Control Panel then launch Event Viewer.

2) If you’ve recently added new hardware, remove it and retest.

3) Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the manufacturer.

4) Make sure device drivers and system BIOS are up-to-date.

5) However, if you’ve installed new drivers just before the problem appeared, try rolling them back to the older ones.
6) Open the box and make sure all hardware is correctly installed, well seated, and solidly connected.

7)Confirm that all of your hardware is on the Hardware Compatibility List.

8)Check for viruses.

9)Investigate recently added software.

10)Examine (and try disabling) BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

Getting Error SA010771 for Fujitsu scanner when I press the Scan button


Found it! To fix the SA010771 error.
This assumes you have already sat there (like I did) and tried everything including adding the event in the scanner settings and changing 0 to ScandALL PRO)
Open Scandall Pro click SCAN - Batch Scan Settings - Add a new profile, for the moment just leave everything as is (change it later). Click Close then close ScandALL PRO and then reopen it.
Click TOOL - Preferences - Event tab, you should now be able to select Profile 1 (or whatever you named it) from the dropdown for Scan.
You can figure the rest out from there : )

Use the HP or Compaq application recovery process to restore the audio driver to their original files and settings. You can find the software program in the start menu under either HP Tools , HP Help & tools , or Compaq , Compaq Tools .
To reinstall any driver that originally came with your computer, first make sure that the driver is available in Application Recovery as follows :
  1. Click on Start , All programs , and then Hewlett-Packard or Compaq . NOTE: If the Hewlett-Packard or Compaq folder does not appear, skip to the next step.
  2. Then, click on any of the folders below (just one of them will be available depending on the model of your computer):
    • HP Pavilion PC Tools ,
    • Compaq Presario PC Tools ,
    • PC Help and Tools , or
    • PC Recovery Tools .
    Figure 5: EXAMPLE of one possible start path. c00786597.gif
  3. Click HP or Compaq Application Recovery .
  4. Select Driver Installation and click Next . Figure 6: Application and Driver Recovery window c00786600.gif
  5. View the list of available drivers to make sure that the name of the driver that you want to restore is available. Close the window by clicking Cancel once you have verified the name. Figure 7: List of drivers c00786601.gif
Next, remove the currently installed driver in Device manager as follows:
  1. Click Start , right-click My Computer and then select Properties .
  2. Click the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button.
  3. Double-click the section that contains the driver that is going to be reinstalled and delete the entry that applies to that driver. To do so, right-click on the entry and select the Uninstall option. Figure 8: Device Manager c00786602.gif NOTE: A warning may appear. Click OK to continue.

Installing Pro tools LE 6.7 on G5


If this was already solved, well, this will help someone else. My guess is your new G5 came with 10.4 or 10.5 and you possibly tried to install LE 6.7 or earlier. This will not work on these OSs. If you have 6.7 you can upgrade to LE 6.9.1 for free and this will solve you problem. If you have LE 6.4 you are screwed and will have fork over $75 to Digidesign to upgrade to 6.9.1...or upgrade to 7.4, which is actually kind of worth it.
