@Chris @Boswell @dvdhawk @Davedog @pcrecord @kmetal @TimDolbear Two days ago, I installed a virus protection program - AVG. I probably didn't even need to, because I don't use this PC for internet cruising, but it has been awhile since I last checked, so I thought I'd give it a quick scan, just to be safe. After installing, and running a quick scan, I was unable to open Samplitude (Pro X Suite). When trying to open the program, I got a message saying "Cannot Save Unlock Key To HD". I contacted Magix support, and they got back to me very quickly with a fix - including a link to download a .dat file, ( Rn5b3242.dat) which I was instructed to place in the Magix/ProgramData Folder. The fix worked immediately and Sam opened right up. (Thanks to Bob Braun at Magix!) Apparently, here's what happened: The VP saw this .dat file as a threat, and quarantined it. (I had the VP set to quarantine potentially harmful files, not delete them) I was incredibly stupid, in that the first thing I did after the problem with Samp occurred, was to uninstall the VP program, and by doing so, I deleted this .dat file from quarantine, rendering Samplitude inoperable. If I had just let AVG alone, I could have simply moved this file out of quarantine and back to where it belonged in the Magix/ProgramData Folder. But, no, instead I chose to be an idiot. I'm posting this because I don't want anyone else to have to deal with this issue. I realized that not all the members I tagged above are Samp users, but I thought I would include them, should someone else have this problem in the future, and the members tagged could point them in the direction of this thread as a way to caution users, and if need be, to solve the issue. I didn't leave anyone out intentionally, if there are other Sam users here that you know of, please feel free to tag them. FWIW -d.
