When I open Avid Xpress I am getting an error message that says “Exception: omfiHPDomain_INIT_Failed: An error occurred validating the media directory

This can happen for a couple of reasons.

1. Your system hard drive may be full. Check your system drive and clear off space if necessary.

2. If #1 doesn’t work, go into your OMFI MediaFiles directory and delete the .pmr and .mdb files. Now re-enter Xpress. If you can't find the .pmr and .mdb files, perform a search on your computer for them. Click the Start button and select search. Select the "for files or folders" option. Search for *.pmr then search for *.mdb. Delete the files that are found, but be SURE they are found in the OMFI MediaFiles folder. You don't want to inadvertantly delete some important database files!
