final_cut_pro_logo.gifFinal Cut Studio only allows you to run one instance of the software on a particular network. If you have a production facility or classroom environment with multiple Final Cut Studio licenses, things can sometimes get confusing with multiple serial numbers.  It's important that each machine maintains its own unique serial number.

To prevent this you must purchase a volume license from Apple, which will allow multiple instances of the same serial number on a network. 

Without a volume license, you may run into an issue where more than one machine accidentally has the same serial number of another machine.  This will require that you delete the Final Cut Studio System ID from one of the conflicting machines and re-enter a serial number that isn't being used.

To do this navigate to the Mac HD / Library / Application Support / ProApps folder.

You can delete the ProAppsSystemID.  *In the previous version, this file is called 'Final Cut Studio System ID'.  The next time you launch any Final Cut Studio application, the system will ask you to re-enter your system ID information.
