Excited on getting your software installed and activated but you don’t know where to start? Here is a basic survival guide to get your Avid software activated!
Open the link indicated on the card with you internet browser www.avid.com/activationcard. This will lead to a page that will allow you to choose your product. In this guide, we will have Media Composer as our Avid Editing Application.
Select Media Composer and click Download Now.
This will lead to the Avid Master Account Login page. Login to proceed or Create an account if you don’t have one. When prompted, enter your Download Code that came with your card.

Once you have restarted your computer, the Application Manager will launch and just minimise this for now. Open Media Composer and you will be presented with a Welcome window.
Select Electronic Activation and Continue, which will open the Application Manager on your screen. Select the (Online) activation method in the drop down menu.
