    MC V4 and Snow Leopard



    I'm brand new to the avid family but I've run into some trouble.

    I have an Imac running OSX v 10.15.2 (aka Snow leopard) and Avid Media Composer V 4.0.2

    Now as I'm sure you might be aware I'm getting the dreaded error message 'Failed to migrate license information'


    From reading around the site this problem isn't new and exciting but as of yet I haven't seen a definitive solution to this problem.


    So I thought I might ask so a straight forward solution for the new people.

    4.0.2 was never qualified for Snow Leopard, only 4.0.3 and higher.

    This information is stated in this article in the Knowledge Base. You can easilily find the article with a search.


    The straight forward solution would be to update to 4.0.3 or 4.0.3 or 4.0.5, which you can find here.


    When installing Avid applications, stick to the system requirements (especially OS and QT versions as well as video cards and driver versions) religiously. See the ReadMe that comes with the installer.


    Hope this helps.

    Hi andwelcome to the forums!

    Job is dead on. You simply have the incorrect version of MC. Download and give that a whirl.

    4.0.5 is the released version and located here:

    Make sure you note that is a patch for Mac and PC located here:

    PC and Mac patches are diffferent in that PC patches just modify the installed editor whereas Mac patches are complete installers.   On the top of the Mac and PC MC forums is a document on instructions on how to use them.

    Hey Mariana,

    Had to re-install OS, was looking for the link to the latest MC 4.x.x update.  Is still the latest? 

    Also the above link to does not work anymore.

    Thanks for your help.
