    Thanks for the update Robert.

    Just a question. I see the old .1 patch has been pulled all together. So both a Mac and PC 2021.12.2 version was released. That could mean the PC .2 version is 100% identical to the .1 version and there is no reason for pc users to download and install this update.

    Or was the issue that the patch wasn't checking for a media composer 2021.12 base install being present also fixed on the PC side? Not that it matters for those that managed to install it.
