Can someone please pm me a link to Pro Tools 12.4

My current 12.7 version is ruining my life with constant 9173 errors. AVID doesn't provide links to their earlier versions. 12.4 was stable.

Thanks in advance.

Went through this journey just the other day.

After hours of searching and only finding info to raise a support case, I found an Avid link to 12.5 which was dead and simply replaced the 5 with a 4 in the url and it worked, installed and working.

Just pm'ed you.

Went through this before. After hours of searching around Avid.com and the internet here is was I did.

Message Avid through there support portal. Explain to them that 12.7 is unusable and 12.4 was working perfect. They'll send the old downloaders through what they call "Avid Transfer", which is basically a fast and secure download link sent to your email. You'll need an avid.com account to access their support portal. (When I messaged Avid through the support portal I did not have any active subscriptions or support plans, and thought they might charge a fee to help...Avid actually helped me get the old versions for free).

Overall, it was a surprisingly positive and painless experience with Avid.

The proper channels are usually the best bet, but I needed this for my morning session. The good ole boy network has saved me much embarrassment.

I've already rolled back to 12.4 and my clients session is running flawlessly. Whereas before I couldn't play it for 5 seconds without a 9173.

I'm a bit disgusted with AVID at the moment.

Thanks again @ peat . You saved the day!

Awesome, glad to have helped out!

Let me know how you go, I'm on 12.7 at the moment but thinking about going back to 12.4 (I was after the installer for a friends system)

There's a huge thread on the DUC about 9173. It seems to be caused by several different issues. Mine was caused by 2 things. An external monitor connected to my laptop AND running large mix sessions. Smaller sessions with the monitor were fine. Complex sessions without the monitor were fine.

Rolled back to 12.4 and everything is now smooth as silk.

I won't be doing any more Pro Tools updates until the word on the street is that 9173 has been eradicated. I'll be putting the 12.4 install in a very safe place.

Dunno what it is with Avid but ever since PT11 roll out (may have been 10) they have been behaving like they are the Apple corp. Even the presentation for PT11 was done exactly like an Apple presentation. Avid did not do this prior to that and as soon as Apple stopped access to previous OS then Avid stops access to their previous versions. Maybe they just look to Apple as their pear...sorry peer.

Hey there! Would you kindly send me the link? I already started a case on Avid, but it's taking a little too long for them to reply me. Thank you in advance!

IMNSHOa smart move is to keep the installers for older versions of everything for at least several generations... you never know...

Does anyone here still have a link to the 12.4 installer handy that they could PM me? Avid sent me a link at 4am that expired in an hour, needless to say I slept through it.
