    Avid Uninstaller before Update to MC 6.0.1

    As a new Avid User this is the first time I have had to perform a maintenance update and I have a newb question. (Yes, I am refering to the MC 6.0.1 for mac that we release earlier this year).

    I understand that I have to fully uninstall MC 6.0 from my system before installing this update. When I run the Avid Uninstaller a list is populated with packages that I can select to uninstall.

     

    - Avid Media ComposerApplications.pkg

    - Avid Media ComposerLibrary.pkg

    - Avid Media CompserSystem.pkg

    - AvidCodecsPE.pkg

    - AvidEDLManager.pkg

    - AvidFilmScribe.pkg

    - AvidLogExchange.pkg

    - SharedComponents.pkg

     

    My question is: do I uninstall all all of these packages or just a select few (and if so which ones)?

    Thank you,

    Paul:

    To update, all you need to uninstall is the Avid Media ComposerApplications.pkg. The latest maintenance update is 6.0.1.1. If you're on a PC, you would install 6.0.1, then add on the 6.0.1.1 patch file. If you're on a Mac, 6.0.1.1 is a full installer, as are all upgrades on the Mac side. 6.0.1.1 contains many significant fixes, so be sure that is the route you take.
