I seem to recall somewhere on this forum that if you are using FCPX you need to create a new folder in your apps name it something like FCS and relocate your FCS apps into the folder. Don't know if this will solve your problem, is it even possible to go from 7 to 5?

Yeah - great. Well I've already installed FCP-X onto my startup disk - guess I didn't realize you had to do it this way but can't believe I'm the only person with this problem...

>I believe you could uninstall FCPX and then re download.
Yes you can.
The App Store already knows that you paid for FCPX.
Kill it all with FCP Remover from digitalrebellion.com, load FCS 2009 first, run all updates and then grab FCPX from the Store.

Nick and David,
Thanks for all this - greatly appreciated - all so I can just get ONE XML file exported from FCP7.0.3! I actutally just got off phone with Apple Support, who told me the only way I could have 7.0.3 is if I had bought 7.0 at some point - but I swear I bought 5 and then upgraded to 7 using software upgrade - I have no 7.0 disks! So he sold me a disk over the phone for $16! And then he gave me the same instructions - dump everything, install FCP7 first, run software update, then go back and reinstall FCPX... Sheesh!
BTW, I sent him the link you sent me David, and he balked and said, wow that's way out of date and sent it upstairs to take offline!
Thanks again guys...

FCP 5.x, whether the stand alone or as part of Final Cut Sutudio is a pay for upgrade to FCS 2009 - which includes FCP 7. You didn't get it via Apple Software Update.
FCS 2009 is a set of disks (7 or 8 DVDs, dunno exactly, my set is in a safe deposit box at my bank)
$16 bucks? Tell him I'll buy a truck load at that price. These babies were $300 if you had a prior version, $1000 if not. What kind of people are manning the Apple support lines these days? In my day, you had to know every single product not only blindfolded but after being beaten senseless, hit with sticks, then drowned in a bucket and spat upon by Windows gamers. Pffft!
"I have a iPhone, tight jeans, a Justin Beaver haircut and horn rimmed spectacles"... Welcome to Apple.
They used to employ people who knew what they were talkng about. For shame Apple. For shame.
Now, get off my lawn you youngsters.
