    Strange Goings On

    Am I going mad?

    Forgive mer if I have missed something but its a while since I've been here BUT

    The last version of MC that I downloaded and installed was v8.5.

    I have just booted up my system and it shows that I am running v8.6.4 which I don't think my system will support and certainly my Artists Colour does not seem to be running as smoothly as it did before.

    Is there something I am missing or is this a strange quirk?

    Whether this could be responsible I don't know but I noticed a setting in AppMan to auto-update. See if that's on in your AppMan. Turn it off if it's on. You can uninstall 8.6.4 and reinstall 8.5 if you prefer that version.

    In addition, you can get the MC 8.5 from your Avid master account download center.

    As Ralph said you can get earlier versions on the DL center but... best to check the hardware requirements to see exactly what your system can handle first.... 

    Also Artist Color could have a newer update than you have so check that out as well.
