    Re: Error 5


    Fix:  Depending on the platform you have you will need to remove the following folder:

    Note: This applies for both Application Manager and Avid License Control utilities in all versions 6.x - 8.x.

                       PC -  Look for the following folders.  If found, delete the entire folder.


                       Mac - Look for the following folders. If found, delete the entire folder.

                                 Macintosh HD/Library/Application_Support/Avid/Licenses

    Important:   If you can’t find the specific folder in Windows, go to Folder Options in the Tools menu and select “Show Hidden Folders.”
