    I did the upgrade from Symphony 6 to 6.5 with the free bump to 7 from the online store. Its supposed to show up automatically, but so far nada. This happening to anyone else?

    I didn’t think I got mine either because I didn’t get the email and it doesn’t show up under “my products”. But when I went to “products not yet downloaded” it was listed there. Maybe the same for you???

    This is from Marianna’s post to the Avid-L2 list at 6:30AM this morning:


    The Protection Period activations are being done now. It is not a given that
    these will be right away at launch as there are tens of thousands to upload..
    As I implied earlier on the site, the Activations are being
    uploaded today and the Protection Period script to populate your My Account at has been started.

    The script is handling about 150 customers per minute so this should take a few
    hours. If things continue to run smoothly, the Protection Period script will
    have placed all codes in My Account at by maybe 5-6 PM ET.

    We are also beginning to send out an Avid email alerting customers that fell
    into the Protection Period that their upgrade is available. Of course the email
    wil go once we know it is in their account. Customers should check their spam
    folder if they do not see the email.

    I expect to receive a spreadsheet of the customers who are covered under Protect
    should anyone think they are eligible but do not see their codes in MY Account

    Please wait a few more hours before you pounce and if it still doesn’t show up
    send an email to customer_advocate@… and include your name, email address
    and system ID and 6.5/10.5 activation in the body of the emails and I will
    tackle as fast as I can.



    Hope that helps.
