    Difference between MC 8 and MC 7.04 & serial numbers

    Hello Avid,

    today I installed a new 7.04 system. I am not sure if the activation process was really sucessful, but the machine is running. Now I am reading that MC 8 is out. After 2 weeks my client bought version 7. Exist any technical difference between the two version, in the readme file I did not find one. Or is this cause your new terrible licensing procedure? Sorry for the straight words, but thats my opinion as customer and as the one who have to install your products. 

    Next question, can I install the boris complete bundle which was licensed in MC 5.5, mean can I take the old serial number of the 5.5 package to activate boris complete 8.x. Same question for the actual Version of Avid DVD and Sorenson Squeeze. If not, can I use the old Third Party Bundel from 5.5 (Sorenson, Avid DVD, Boris) within MC 7.04

    And last question, can I use MC 6.05 with a MC 7 Key. If I fi9nd out that in MC7 are too many bugs, I have to downgrade immediatly, no time here for betatesting, cause money is not coming out of a magic wall.


    Thanks a lot.


    PS: MC 6.05 was realy hot stuff.

    BCC as supplied for Avid versions prior to v6 is a 32-bit program.  As such it will not function as a plug in for 64-bit versions of Avid.  To upgrade to a 64 bit version of BCC you will need to pay Boris.
