    MC 2.0 ppc compatibility

    Hello everyone,

     

    I have a question regarding old software compatibility. I need to know which OSX version is compatible with the old Media Composer 2.0. My oldest mac is a powermac g5 (early 2005 model - dual 2 Ghz) and this unit came with Tiger preinstalled. As Avid removed some install files from the site a few years ago, counting on intermediate mc updates or installing OSX 10.3 is not an option and I need to make sure version 2.0 (which came around late 2004 if I’m correct) is Tiger compatible, even if it’s not a recommended configuration, if I may say.

     

    Thanks))

    Does this get you close?

    Would you not be helped if someone were able to provide an installer for a more mature version of 2.x, or even 3.x?

    Awhh, version 2.0 is not listed on the rundown :( Given the 1st intermediate update (v1.8) compatible with Tiger did come out about 6 months after 2.0, I guess 2.0 on 10.4 is a no-go.

    Don't worry Job, i'm using 5.5 & 8 on my main machine. I made this post cause I found an install disc and I wanted to give it a try.

     

    Thanks for your help !!
