    Is your ILock installed?PT 7 requires one which is shipped with the software.

    Protools 7 uses an iLok USB dongle for copy protection. Its explained in the Getting Started guide. You'll need to get an iLok dongle and set up an account at Then, when you register your copy of PT7, they will send an authorization for PT7 to your iLok account. Once you download it to your iLok, you can launch PT7 properly.

    I think I had the same error (access violation) when my Digi 002 box fried. It thought another device was using it already. The error message came up while starting Pro Tools. Turns out that a small component went bad. Digi fixed it for free.
