    Upgrade to 8.4


    I have a perpetual educational license. I'd like to upgrade from 8.2 to 8.4 but the application manager tells me that I'm not allowed to upgrade the software. I don't understand why because my System ID, according to Avid website, allows me to update the software untino october 2015.
    So far, I've always upgraded MC downloading the softare from Avid website and than installed the software after a clean install of the Operative System.

    From what I've read online, now it is allowed to upgrade MC using the Application Manager without a clean install. 

    I wanted to give it a try, but apparently the Application Manager have some problem with my id.

    Can someone please help? Thanks

    Did you go to and enter in your information ?  If a student license and eligible, we will then deposit a 8.4 activation in your master Account.
