    I have a monthly subscription to Media Composer Ultimate. For some reason I had to authenticate upon launch, and I accidentally clicked on media composer/first. After that, every time I try to launch media composer, it gives me an error “you do not have a media composer / first entitlement “

    it won’t direct me to the activation options on avid link. When I open avid link, and try to manually activate the license, I get the same error. Please help! I can’t get any work done.

    Hey Annu,

    Have you tried to un-install, and then re-install Avid MC?
    I would also suggest that you log into your online account to see if by choosing “first”, if Avid has taken that as you cancelling your subscription – although unlikely, worth checking.

    Alternatively, you might need to call Avid directly.

    Thank you! Actually, another forum told me to press “w” while pressing the media composer icon, and this allowed me to authenticate with avid link. So random… but it worked!
