    Media Composer / Applications Manager on OS10.11.4

    Hi All

    I'm new-ish to Avid and I am having trouble installing MC / AM on a Retina i-mac. Does anyone have any experience with Media Composor and /or Aplications Manager on OSX 10.11.4? This new update to OSX came out around March 20th 2016 and was installed on this particular i-mac by mistake. (Somebody pressed the wrong button - normally I would not have installed the update so soon after release.)

     

    The problem is now Applications Manager quits as immediately after it launches.

     

    Previously, MC and AM ran fine in demo mode when we were trying it out. We completely uninstalled the demo version when we purchased our new licence in order to start from scratch. The only thing different about the system since then is the upgrade to 10.11.4. and I suspect this may be the issue.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Hi John,

    Marianna, Avid's customer advocate, has recently posted that 10.11.4 is not supported. I'm not sure if your problem with the aplication manager is a known issue but I guess it is.

    So I guess your best option is to format and setup 10.11 from the start.

    Hi Jeroen

    Thanks for pointing me to Marianna's post. Yes, I'm next going to try creating a partition running an older OS version specifically to run our Media Composer setup.

    Even if AppMan quits, does MC launch?

    I didn't try it at the time. Will try tomorrow and let you know.

    I'm just offering that as a solution instead of having to downgrade the OS. If everything else works, ignore AppMan until Avid releases an update that is qualified for OS X 10.11.4.
