    Thanks Larry Smile

    Could this mean Avid has finally nailed the infamous "projects forget media settings" bug?

    Let's certainly hope so. Only time will tell for sure.

    I am trying anyway. There's a little situation. We just got a new MacPro-Lion but we've not yet planned for upgrading our MC-5.0s.

    I have just installed the 5.0.4.2 update. Now I can no longer get Avid to recognise Network Drives. We are using an EditShare system connecting to the network drives via SMB. "alldrives" in the console says it it toggling network drives on and off but no network drives are appearing in Media Creation.

     

    Ignore this post. This system was a clone. Subsequent clones seem to be working fine. Must have corrupted in some way during the cloning process.

    Hello. I just got back from a OSX SnowLeopard recovery.

    I installed/updated to MC 5.0.4.2 but got a software activation failed message, so I planned to revert to 5.0.4. After the install, I had several error notices (screenhot).

    Iinstall was successful. After the reboot, I launched 5.0.4 but I still get the same software activation failed message.

    Please help!

    Here's a collage of screenshots:

    This is obviously a license issue, and given the fact that you're in the Philipines, you can either contact an office from this list, or email Marianna and include your system ID and serial number. For your safety and protection, never post your system ID or serial number on this or any other public website.

    Good morning (eve?), Pinoy greetings!

    So, I found out today that my license is ok. I tried opeing AvidMC on the old MacPro and it's ok! FYI, before this problem, the new MacPro with AvidMC5 ran fine for several days.

    So, at this moment it's pretty clear that my new MacPro-8core's system is messed up. Do you think total reformat is it? ..do you concur?

    I'd like to help you, but I'm not by any means a Mac expert. However, user Kenton VanNatten is. You can thoroughly trust whatever he advises you to do.

    Update: MacPro running up!

    - Blasted system drive by TargetDiskMode
    - Reinstalled SnowL.+ComboUPdate (10.6.8)
    - MacPro running up!
    - Reinstalled Avid MC - license activates!
    - Reinstalled Photoshop, and other apps - runs fine

    Generally, everything looks good with no error or anything.

    I'll continue observing...& praying that it will stay this way.

    Thanks for all your help!
