    Problem Installing Media Composer 8

    Hello:  I'm trying to install Media Composer 8 on a MacPro and encountering a Java glitch that will not allow the software to install on any operating system from 10.10.5 to 10.12.6.

    I've installed the Java 1.6, from the link that comes up.   I have never found an Avid Manager app.  I uninstalled avid MC 7.0.6 to do the upgrade... but after several attempts across 3 different operating systems, I had to put 7.06 back in.   Frustrating!  Any tips for Mac users?

    2012 Westmere- 2-2.66Ghz 6 core, 32 GBs Ram, ATI Radeon 5770.

    Much appreciated!

    Which specific version of Media Composer 8? Make sure the version you're trying to install is compatible with the MacOS you're running:

    There's a link to the legacy version matrix pdf on that page, and you can scroll down to get to the MacOS part.

    Media Composer 2021.6 w/Symphony/SS/PF options, HP Z-Book G6 17", i7-9850H 2.60GHz, 32gb RAM, NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000, Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini... [view my complete system specs]
