    New - Avid Symphony patch install and download instructions

    Downloading and Installing an Avid Editor PC Patch from the Support Download Page

    1.  Go to

    2.  Scroll down and select the Avid Editor Patches folder.

    3.  Read the conditions and click “I Accept”.

    4.  Choose the patch you require from the list of patches, for example Avid Media Composer PC v4.0.5.1.

    Important Note: In order to install this patch you must have the Avid Media Composer v4.0.5 application and Installer on your system.  (The last previous full installer) 

    5.  Click on the .msp patch file. The Opening Avid Media Composer Patch dialog box opens.

    6.  Click Save File to save the file to your system (the Desktop).  

    7.  Double-click the .msp patch file.  A dialog box appears and asks if you want to open this file.  

    8.  Click Open. The InstallShield Wizard will then open. 

    9.  Click Next.     

    10. Click Update. If the patch installer cannot locate the installer for the version of Avid Media Composer required on your system (in this case v4.0.5), a dialog box opens asking you to locate the full Installer file.

    11. Click the Browse button and navigate to the Avid Media Composer.msi file in the previous full installer. The previous installer should be located here: (your local system)\AvidMediaComposer_(version)\Installers\MediaComposer\Avid Media Composer.msi  

    12. If you do not have the previous full installer on your system, you must download the editor from, save the zipped file to your system (Desktop), and unzip the file.

    Note: You do not need to run the full installer again and should proceed to step 11 again.

    Questions, ping me directly.
