Default Download Pro Tools 7.3 or pay for an authorisation code for 7.4

Hi,

I urgently need to get PT working on my laptop (mac OS 10.7.5).

I do not have my installation discs on me and am in a foreign country. I have my mbox 2 mini with me.

I have an authorisation code for PT 7.3, which is running on my Mac Pro at home.

Will 7.3 run on my laptop (OSOS 10.7.5)? If so, where can I download the installer?

I have succeeded in downloading and installing PT 7.4.2 on my laptop and need an authorisation code. I am happy to pay!

Thanks in advance.

I don't think so. PT7.3 is supposed to be used with Tiger (10.4.x) and PT7.4.2 is built for Leopard (10.5.x)

You also need different operating system. Please check the compatibility chart before you buy a PT license

Ok, so I have found a downloadable installer for Pro Tools LE 8.4. How do I buy the license and thereby get an authorisation code?

You find someone who wants to sell his used system. Cannot buy a new one anymore. But did you understand that PT7 and OSX 10.7.x isn't supported and most likely not going to work. I myself wouldn't even try.

I got that thanks, and that is why I am going for PT8. So Avid will not under any circumstances allow me to pay them money for an authorisation code for PT8?
