    Reinstalling v3.5: Avid ID number?

    In 2009, I purchased Media Composer v3.5. My PC crashed last spring, & I need to reinstal v3.5 (on the Media Composer v3.5 disk is an 11 digit number, an underscore, & letter i.e. 8888-88888-88_B). Is this the correct Avid ID number for me to reinstal? Unfortunately, I can't upgrade from v3.5, due to my PC & monetary issues. If this isn't the Avid ID number, can you please direct me where to locate the correct code I need to input [I don't have any paperwork from '09, & I sent an email to Avid, regarding the matter...may take a while to get a reply)? -Thanks for any help or information you can give. -R.C.

    You should have a dongle, and (hopefully) that should have a tag attached to it which has your system ID number on it.

    Media Composer 2018.7 w/Symphony/SS/PF options, HP Envy 17t-j100 Quad Edition laptop, Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i7 2.4GHz, 16 GB RAM, nVidia GeForce GT... [view my complete system specs]

    Re: Reinstalling v3.5: Avid ID number?


    Thanks for offering you help!   I did get the license number from Avid Customer Care.  Is there an alternate way to re-install MC3.5, besides using the software (i.e. downloading it from Avid online?).   I'm going to hire a computer expert to re-install it, but I would feel more secure if it could be downloaded from Avid as well, just in case the software isn't functioning properly.

    Thanks for any advice you can give,

    R. Anderson,
