    User privileges insufficient to start a low level driver - during activation

    I get this error message when trying to activate MC 7.0.4 on my new hard drive..."User privileges insufficient to start a low level driver". iLOK says I should contact Avid for help (updated permissions?).Since Avid no longer supports this legacy version they cannot help me.

    I had to install a new system hard drive on my laptop but MC was working fine with my dongle on the old drive. What I have found out is that I need a version of 7.0.4 (or any 7.0.X) that was downloaded prior to 11/1/13. That is when Avid changed their anti-piracy system. Does anyone know if it's possible to get such a file?

    Thanks for any input.

    You can get 7.0.6 and 7.0.7 from the Download Center:

    If some sort of date problem is hampering your efforts, send an email to Chris Bové (chris.bove@avid.com) and Raff Condalor (raff.condalor@avid.com).  They are Avid's customer advocates, and while I don't guarantee they'll be able to help you, they are the people to ask.

    Hi Carl,

    Thanks for the contact info. I will reach out to them. The date issue definitely is the problem.

    Best,
