    Activation of Media composer 7 on mac?

    Hey guys

    I've spent all day trying to activate my copy of media composer 7 and i've exhaused pretty much all of my options. The lisence profile tool on my copy is worthless as it doesn't contain any of my codes, and the activiation code i have been sent from the third party (Student edition) is in the wrong format. The activation ID required needs 16 characters, and the one i've been sent it something like 24. Not to mention i haven't been sent a system ID. I'm really frustrated here after paying £200 for software i can't currently use, and it would only add insult to injury if i have to pay to phone up avid customer support. I'm a student, by definition that means i'm pretty poor haha. 

    I'd be eternally gratetful for any information you could share on the matter.

    Take the last 16 numbers, and use those as the SN. I'll wager the first numbers are the SYSTEM ID...since it is 11 characters long.

    Also, all licensing support calls are FREE.

     

    and student versions of MC can get a year's worth of support for $100 USD

    I tried that to no success, but thank you all for the advice! I think i'll call AVID tomorrow if support is free for licensing issues. Is this for definite?

    Just to add, it didn't work because the activation code i have been given is a mixture of characters and numbers, and the system ID has to be purely numeric. I think this issue is leaning towards being sent a faulty code perhaps so i'll have to see what they say tomorrow. I'll keep you all posted. Thanks again.
