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?

- 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.
