    Purchased a month avid License, I need v8.9.4, can’t activate.

    I purchased a monthly media composer license but can’t seem to activate v8.9.4 with the license key I purchased. 


    Is there any way to use this version?

    It should work. What is specifically happening when you try? Are there error messages? If so, what do they say?

    Which product specifically did you lease? Media Composer Ultimate is the only one that supports older 8.x versions. Also, begining in June new purchases/leases will only support back to 2018.9.

    • On May 30, 2019, Avid will begin selling perpetual software licenses and subscriptions of Media Composer that will only run v2018.9 or later.
    • In addition, when an existing subscription (a subscription started before May 30, 2019) is renewed, it will also only run v2018.9 or later.
