Hoping someone can help me here i have installed Final Cut Express onto our mac's and created an image of the Mac but nothing i did would allow the students to run the software which i had already registered on my image. Everytime a user other than me tries to run final cut express they need to fill out the registration details, is there anyway that i can stop this from happening so that i only register it the once but everyone can use it.
yes it needs a license i have bought the license for each mac and isntalled onto an image but it seems when i have imaged the mac it has removed the license key although i think i have got it sorted. I logged in again as the administrator and entered the key. then copied the final cut express folder which it creates in my documents into the shared user documents and pointed final cut back to the shared user document folder for final cut and it seems to be working now.
You could try forcing your com.apple.finalcutexpress.plist (or whatever it is called) on to your machines via MCX. What version of FCE are you running and what is your client OS?
thanks steve i have tried copying the plist into the default account but for some reason they still get asked about sending off there details. We are running 10.6 on the macs it seems to work now if i login again as admin and add the registration info again then when the pupils login they get a registration details form so when they click later the software works fine and it says that its registered to systems admin.
I seem to remember something about all users needing permission to the Final Cut folder for it to run.
on all the machine to get it to work I believe.Code:chmod -R 777 /Library/Application\ Support/Final\ Cut\ Pro\ System\ Support
