    Registering OK, Program locked

    Last week I did the update from Liquid to Media Composer and in 2 days I recieved the box with the good stuff.

    After installing Media Composer on my PC I did get the message : Registration Succesful for : Avid Media Composer 4. With the additional thanks for purchasing this product and so on. I got also an email as a confirmation. So far, so good.

    Launching the program however gives me the popup mesage "Your software is not registered, would you like to register now ?" By pushing the "Register later" button there came the normal Avid startuo window with on the right :

    Licence Type : Node Locked

    System ID : my ID number

    Computername : my computername   and in the left-under corner : This software is unregistered.

    Please can you tell me what I did wrong or what went wrong?

    Thank you in advance,

    Peter

    Peter,

    I had the same issue, and it is a problem with the Avid software.  Many others have had the same problem.  If I remember correctly, after a few starts of MC the error message goes away.  Just ignore the Software Not Registered message, because it is obviously not the case.

    Hope this gives you some level of comfort with this issue.

    Hi Peter,

    Check if ACTIVATION was ok (I suppose so as it says "node locked"). See also here.
    REGISTRATION can best be done manually. See the pinned post from Marianna in which she describes how to do it. It is best to have it registered twice than none: without a proper registration you won't get the offer to upgrade to MC5 for free coming month.

    Hi Denny and Bernd,

    Thank you for your comforting words, Glad that it is not my fault or mistake, so i am a registered user anyway and can in time download the upgrade to MC5. Now I can start and find out how many years I need to edit just as with Liquid In the meantime Bernd, I have already had 3 emails with the confirmation that the program is registered. The only thing is now to switch to the Dutch language because that option was not provided by the install procedure.

    Greeting,

    Peter

    I don't think there is Dutch in MC. I would be very (positve) surprised if there was .... Big Smile .

    Hallo Bernd,

    I also hoped for the Dutch language while in the Setup.ini file the option to choose a language the country code for the Netherlands was written, so my idea was that the optin was available. Sorry for you and me.

    Vanaf de parel van de Veluwe, de groeten.
