  • Re: New - Avid Link Update 2019.3

    Yes, on the first part. There are two buttons that are supposedly for activation of MC. Opening MC itself, there is a button to activate. That doesn't work. After manually reentering my information on Avid link, it successfully activated and MC now opens. The bug is that Avid link appears to either delete or corrupt previous activations and although

    Hi Keith. I wish it had been that easy. Avid Link was open and I was signed in and all my purchases were displayed. However Media Composer would not work without adding back the ID and serial number and reactivataing. It is definitely a bug on Avid's end, not user error. My main reason for keeping Avid was stability and ability to open up older

    There are two activation messages that come up with Media Composer. If you open MC itself, after Avid link was updated, MC gives you a message to activate over the internet. This does not work. It just goes in a loop of giving you the message to activate and MC will not open. The second way is through Avid link itself. Apparently (I found this out through

    Perpetual licenses are "perpetual". But yes, I was using the same system ID. Media Composer asked for activation by internet, but just went in a continuous loop. I had to reactivate MC through avid link with reentering the system ID and activation code to get it working. Somehow, the new Avid link must strip out this information.

  • Cannot activate Media Composer

    With most recent update, Avid Link gets unstable and freezes. I can restart it with shutting down Avid programs in Activity monitor and then starting first Avid Helper and then Avid Link. All my programs show up, but Avid Media Composer will not start. I get the message to activate the program over the internet. Nothing happens and Media Composer no

    Now I can no longer sign in to Media Composer. It is an endless loop of asking to activate the software. This program is getting less and less stable.

    Doing a sync doesn't fix the problem. The Avid link says I have installed Media Composer 2018.12.2 and has "what's new" with a button to update to exactly the same version.

    Avid link appears to be broken with most recent version. Previous versions corrupted the cache. This gives a message to install programs already installed (like most recent version of MC), and deleting the cache does not fix this. Clicking "install" just overwrites MC and requires a reboot and then comes up with a message to update again.

  • Re: Avid Link - Launched today at NAMM 2019

    Maybe this should be made a sticky, as I got locked out again today and had to go through the steps outlined in the 1/31/2019 post.

  • Re: Locked out of MC after 2018.12.1 update

    i too am locked out of media composer after finally getting avid link to work. The electronic activation failed, but reactivating through avid link by putting back in my serial number and activation ID seems to have worked. It seems Avid Link is a bit buggy right now.
