    Avid Cloud Services

    I've noticed that with one of the last MC updates that "Avid Cloud Services" has been installed on my system. I have no need for any Cloud services, and wasn't asked during the install if I wanted this on my PC.

     

    Can I remove this "service" without causing any issues with MC, or is this something that we are forced to have even if we will never use it?

    Hi Gerry,

      Let me check this with our AppMan Dev team.

     

       If you install Media Composer, you install the same binary that is used for Media Composer | First, that is why you have the Cloud services installed. If it makes it easier for you, I uninstall Cloud service and I can still run MC.

     

     

    Thanks,

    RalphC

    Thank you for the information Ralph.

    I still feel that if some service is not required in order to fully use the software then the user should be given the oppertunity to not have it installed on a system.

     

    Regards,
