    Hello everyone,

    I am not sure did I post this thread at the right place, but I require some help.

    I bought a MBOX mini 2, which comes with Pro Tool 7.3, 7.3.1 updater and a bunch of plugins.

    With windos Xp, service pack 3, internet explorer 8, my Pro tool fails to install.

    After I have removed internet explorer 8, the version was dropped to explorer 6 automatically.

    Then, my Pro Tools works (after a long hard painful research).

    Now, my question is: Is there any Pro Tools that works with Internet Explorer 8 in XP? I cannot justify the advantage of increasing vulnerability of virus attack, by having a lower explorer version, just for the sake of getting Pro tools running.

    There must be other solutions. I have googled a lot, but there are no solid answer. And yes, Avid still hasn't answered my question after I have waited for 2 weeks. I am considering to buy Pro Tool 8, but I would like to know whether I can buy cd only, and any Pro Tool actually works with Explorer 8.

    Thank you!!

    That's normal behaviour for PT 7-8. Actually, I think they fixed this problem in PT 8.3. When did you buy your MBox? There may possibly be an upgrade available to PT 9 for a reasonable price. Then again, you would need Windows 7.
