    Avid Media Composer 30 day Free Trial

    Hello,

    I downloaded the Avid Media Comoper 30 Day free Trial and when I unzipped the folder and pressed Install Media Composer on my laptop it would not work. Could someone please help me with this? thank you.

    It would help to know more about the system you're working on.  Which version of Media Composer are you running?  Which specific OS? What processor? What video card? How much RAM?

    Also, when you say "it would not work" what do you mean? Does the installer run? Freeze? Explode in a fiery rain of computer shrapnel?

    Hi,

    Which processor is the laptop running?

    Are there any other Avid products installed? Have there been any in the past?

    My guess is your system is not powerful enough to run Media Composer. Have a look at the system requirements:

    What Carl said, nevertheless MC should install and perhaps run, make sure You unzipped the downloaded installer at the root level of the C:\ drive, the installer is known to have troubles running from too deep a path.
