    Need 5.5 Academic to purchase (using Mac Pro 1.1)

    I'm in a bit of a bind here. I am running a Mac Pro 1.1 with 8gb of ram and have been using a trial version of Avid 5.5.

    The trial has expired and I can't open up my old projects now. I obviously can't upgrade to Lion using a Mac Pro 1.1, hence it does me no good to purchase Avid 6 academic & install it, right? I'm only interested in using 5.5.  (BTW, the SWL trick is not working for me).

    Thoughts?  Any way to purchase an old academic version of 5.5 that I can install & run on this system? Is there another work-around?

    Actually, MC is up to v6.5 right now.

    Contact customer advocate Marianna and see if she can help.  It may be possible to purchase v6.5 and then get a downgraded license for v5.5.
