Pro Tools 7.3.1 not working with the latest Apple Security Update

Home / General / Pro Tools 7.3.1 not working with the latest Apple Security Update
In General

The latest Apple Security Update 2008-008 if applied when running Pro Tools 7.3.1 will cause it to break and not be able to open up anymore. To get it working in the mean time:

Navigate to your Pro Tools Application in the Applications folder.

Right click on the App and choose, ‘Show Package Contents’

Open the Contents Folder, and then open the MacOS folder

Double click on the Pro Tools Icon that is in here.

This will bypass the regular opening of the program through the normal icon interface and open it as a unix executable. You will have a Terminal window open in the background but you can ignore it and continue to use the program as normal. Something in the latest security update must have broken the binding of opening the program the normal way.
