Final Cut Pro 7 (Studio upgrade from 2.2, up through 5.1 and several Pro upgrages and patches since then) now asks for Serial Number after upgrading to Mavericks.  The old original Serial Numbers do not work.  Does anyone know how to get FCP7 working again?  I still use it, and have many plugins I need that don't exist in FCPX.  Despair....  Upgrading to Mavericks has cause one problem after another.

    If you are installing from an upgrade disc, you need to enter the serial number of the (last) full version you are upgrading from, and then you will be prompted to enter the serial number from the upgrade disc.

    I am not clear. You started off in Final Cut Pro v.? and what was the OP SYS and machine that you began on 10 yrs ago? Did you upgrade$ or update the versions. Are you still on the same machine? The reason I ask is that I am running both 7 & X with no issues yet, but I never try to open them BOTH up at once. Did you accidentlly do that?

    If it were me - if I couldn't pull the s # from a ccc b/u... I'd call Apple. They are know to be very helpful with supplying the right serial # once they realize that you are a bonafide a # 1 love -u- long time Mac fan/customer.  Really, I'd just call 'em. I honestly cannot think of any other way. Good Luck tho...
