    Copy pasted from:

    The installer, AvidISISSetup.exe, determines the version of software currently on your System Director and prevents you from performing an unsupported upgrade.

    If applicable, a dialog box instructs you to upgrade to an intermediate version before upgrading to the current version. Make sure you correctly identify your ISIS hardware model in the table, where noted. 

    Inyour case: v4.0.3 (ISIS 5000) / v4.0.4 (ISIS 7000) To 4.7.11 which is direct, without intermediate steps.

    I've done the upgrade and it worked fine.


    ALWAYS make a backup of your metadata prior to the upgrade!

    • Partition0 • Partition1 • PartitionDump.bin

    metadata location: D:\Program Files\Avid\ISIS System Director


    From the old Apple Quadro 950 to HP Z8xx. My current own system: 1x Z420 E5 1650 16GB memory, 128GB SSD, 1x XW8600, 2x 3.0Ghz Quadcore, 12GB memory... [view my complete system specs]

    ISIS 5000 v4.0.3 is the System Director version of the 4.2.2 Kit. As Jeroen pointed out, you can upgrade directly 4.7.x. I strongly suggest upgrading to 4.7.11 and using the NEXIX client found on the Avid Download Center. [view my complete system specs]
