    How do I install MC 2020.4 correctly?

     

    I have upgraded to Windows 10 on a new Motherboard. Windows 7 is still virtually available via VMware, there I have deactivated Media Composer 2018.12.3.

    Do I have to install Avid Link first? Or can I directly unzip Media_Composer_2020.4_Win.zip and start *.exe file? 

     

    To where do I have to extract the zip File?

    Roland Achini:

    Extract to the root of the C: drive (or your system drive if your system drive is not C:). If you use a folder inside Windows somewhere, the file names can get too long for the installer to work properly.

    It doesn't matter. The installer will look to see if Avid Link is installed, and if it doesn't find it, it will install it.
