    Do I need to uninstall Avid FX and Boris AVX when upgrading/installing 5.0.3.X?

    Hi,

    Thanks in advance for reading my post.  I'm attempting to upgrade from Media Composer 5 to 5.0.3.8 and I'm unsure if I also need to uninstall the Avid FX 5.8 and Boris Continuum AVX 6.0.  I believe I've properly uninstalled AMC 5 (I ran all the Avid uninstallers) but I can't find any information on what to do about the FX packages.

    If anyone who has gone thru this process can shed any light or make any recommendations it would be greatly appreciated.  I recently loaded AMC 5 directly from the disks onto a new Mac Pro with Snow Leopard 10.6.6 (3.33ghz 6-core, 12gb RAM, ATI Radeon 5770) and did not know that I would have to uninstall in order to upgrade.

    Thanks again.

    Sincerely,

    Hi again,

    I realize that this information (whether it is necessary to uninstall Avid and Boris FX during upgrade) may be out there in the ether somewhere but I can't seem to find the answer.  If anybody has already uninstalled and then reinstalled Media Composer could you tell me how you handled the FX packages.

    Thank you in advance.

    I don't think so but if the versions you have of Avid FX and Boris haven't changed you could just re-install without uninstalling if something doesn't work.  Not necessarily true if the versions are not identical.

    Must think of something clever to go here...
