    I have 9 older licenses for Media Composer 5.5.  These have all been upgraded over the years etc...

    I recently purchased 3 new licenses from an Authorized Vendor.  I have activated and have been using all three.  I successfully registered 2 of them but the third is telling me:

    There was an error on the page:

    • Error: Duplicate Registration Detected

      Avid Product Registration not completed: The System ID and/or Serial Number has exceeded the allowable registrations.

      Please verify the information provided and make any appropriate corrections

      I have verified all the info and nothing I do allows me to register it.  

      Also when I got to my user page at it does not reflect the newly registered software.

      I wish there was one place to keep all my info together that would facilitate upgrades and new purchases.

      Any ideas from my friends at Avid?



      I also need to deactivate one of my machines and move the license to another tower.  This is not something I'd done before. Any tips?

    Doug: Regarding the registration issue, you can contact Avid at 1-800-800-2843 and choose option 2 for license support during normal business hours US Eastern time. With version 5, go to the special menu and choose "deactivate software license". You'll need an Internet connection on the target machine in order to re-activate the license online.
