Final Cut Express 4 Keeps Quitting Unexpectedly?


So, on my old computer, I had Final Cut Express 4. However, that computer crashed and is no longer in use, resulting in all applications and documents from my old computer being transferred into a hard drive. I plugged in my hard drive to my new computer, and when I try to open Final Cut Express, almost immediately a small window pops up saying "The application Final Cut Express quit unexpectedly. Mac OS X and other applications are not affected." I had MANY times try to click relaunch, then reset and relaunch, but the same window appears each time. What should I do? Will my Final Cut EVER be able to work on this computer or any other? Or will I have to purchase a new one? Thanks SO much!


My suggestion:
Remove FCE withhttp:
Then reinstall from your FCE disc.
