    Did you uninstall any previous version of MC before attempting to install 2021.5?  Did you unzip the installer from the route level of your C:\ drive?  FWIW I have had no issues installing and using 2021.5 on the latest version of W10 pro after uninstalling my existing MC version and unzipping the 2021.5 installer on the C: drive.

    Hello fdooman,

      The downloaded file is zip (Windows) you need to install your choice of unzipping utility/program to extract the file before installing, to avoid corrupted installation

     

    Thanks,

    RalphC

    TVJohn:

    Logged on Windows as Administrator?

    Or as a member of the administrators group. And then right-click and select 'Run as administrator' on the Install Media Composer.exe

    I have not had any issues with Avid installers, either. After running Install Media Composer.exe and accepting the dialog to allow the program to make changes, you should see a dialog indicating that it wil install several prerequisites. After the prerequisites are installed the actual Media Composer installer is run and a new installation wizard dialog appears.

    From the sounds of it (to the OP) you aren't even seeing the prerequisites dialog.

    It's worth checking that you unzip the installer into a folder under the root of one of your drives such as C:\Temp (or into the root if possible) to keep the file paths as short as possible. In the past, this has been an issue, I recall.

    I also always uninstall Avid Link, Avid Cloud Client Services and Avid Media Composer before I install a new build - may not be necessary but old habits die hard, lol.

    I used to all that un-installs - but recently been using AVID LINK for the installs and the upgrades have been fine.  I was wondering if I should do a manual un-install but opted to the AVID LINK.  Will I run into problems?   Should I do a complete un-install and then re-install the full version of  2021.5?

    I think you are probably OK using Avid Link. If you find you have an issue that other's aren't having at some point, you can always uninstall / reinstall and see if the issue goes away. If you aren't having any problems (that others aren't reporting) then there's no reason to be concerned.

    Re: Avid 2021.5 installer chocks ?????

    Thank you so much everyone for taking time to help. Sorry for the late reply as I had deadline, working very late.

    I did uninstall MC only not the rest, I may have to do that.

    I did unzip the file first using Win zip. on C drive and other drives with no results.

    I keep getting 2 update one for media composer and one for Avid link,even Avid link won't take the update in Avid link App.

    I will try later today other otions and will post the results.

    Thanks again

    I can't even install Avid link 21. I tried version prior, they all worked fine. As I said Avid 2021.5 CHOCKS. And I was not wrong about it.

    Re: Avid 2021.5 installer chocks ?????

    Where is MARIANNA???? Where is AVID???? to clean this mess. Don't tell me is my system. I have tried many time installing-uninstalling 2020.12.2 with no problem, but when it comes to 2021.5 the Hell breaks loose. I hope I don't have to take this issue all over the social media.
