    Avid MC 6.5.4 on Mac OS X 10.9.1 Crashes Install

    I just got a new MBPretina and when I downloaded Avid from my profile on avid.com (which is 6.5.4) and I go to install it, my entire system crashes. Its blinks to the grey screen with a power symbol and multiple languages that says to restart. On my 10.8 MBP I had no issues like this. Any insights on how to rectify this? Thanks!

    Macbook Pro Retina (Late-2013) Mac OS X 10.9.1 (always up to date) 2.3ghz Intel Core i7 16gb Ram Nvidia GeForce GT 750M / Iris Pro [view my complete system specs]

    You'll need to update to MC 7.0.3 to work on the Mavericks OS.   Here is the thread that talks about MC and Mavericks.

    At your own risk you MAY like to try this (written for 7.0.3 not 6.5.x) and see if it works for you

    Workaround:  In order to install Media Composer or Symphony on a Mac running Mac OS X v10.8 Mountain Lion or Media Composer with the Symphony Option on a Mac running 10.9.x Mavericks, you must disable Gatekeeper.

    Note: Mountain Lion is qualified for Media Composer 6.0.3, Symphony 6.0.3 and later releases.  Mavericks is qualified for Media Composer 7.0.3.

    The Knowledge Base article where the instructions to disable Gatekeeper is located here:
