Hi everyone,

First, I am running Snow Leopard on a unibody Macbook Pro 15 / Core2Duo 2.66 GHz, 4 GB

Long time ago, I installed Final Cut Express 4 on this computer, then switched to Final Cut Pro 7, uninstalled them both (using fcs remover), haven't used for a long time. I'm just a hobbyist in video production, but beyond iMovie09...

Now that I have installed FC Express back again, I get crashes all the time whenever i try to launch the app.

I have googled a lot, tried many things but still I am clueless. Really thinking of a clean system restore, which is so much pain

Any ideas would be sooo much appreciated...

Each time try a different solution, i guess the problem report have changed...

This is the recent one:

It seems I am missing the folder and files in this directory:
I would be very happy if anyone can copy this folder from their macs and e-mail me in a zipped folder...
