    System crashes on installation of MC 6.5.3

    Hi! 

    I'm having a problem installing Avid Media Composer 6.5.3 on my MacBook Pro. Simply opening the uninstaller will crash the computer as well as opening the installation package. 

    its a brand new system and was running avid 6.5.3 fine until I did a clean uninstall of the whole system so I could migrate my info from an older Mac Book Air. Then I downloaded MC and could not get it installed... Any ideas???

     

    Thanks!

    I had th exact same issue with 6.5.3 and 7 on two different macbooks. They would crash during different stages of the install each time.

    After several attempts I managed to finally get through the installs without a crash.

    The only thing I can think might have been the problem was that both machines had the same Samsung SSD drive in.

    Copy the installer out of the mounted dmg file to your desktop and install from there.

    good luck.
