    Final Cut Express 2.0 Doesn't run on new iMac
    Hey Everyone, I just installed Final Cut Express 2.0 and it installed fine, however when I try to start it up it states it cannot start because I dont have an AGP Graphics Card. It's the Brand New 20" iMacs (aluminum and black) anyone have any suggestions?

    Specs:
    Mac Pro, 8GB o' RAM, 4.5 TB o' disc space, OS Ecks 10.6.7, etc
    - Control-Click (or right click) on the Final Cut Pro application and select "Show package contents". ?- Open the contents folder and open info.plist with TextEdit. ?- Search for AGP replace it with PCI. ?- Save and close the file. ?- Open FCE HD and it works.

    Thanks for that suggestion, I will try it tonight. I did also find another solution yesterday that when this error dialogue appears, by pressing ESC on the keyboard it bypasses it too. I'd rather not have to hit Escape everytime I start Final Cut though.

    What Joe Redifer posted should work. Worked for me when I went from a G4 DA with AGP to the last iMac G5 with PCI Express video. Same problem as you and that took care of it.
