I have final cut 7 on this machine already and wanted to purchase final cut pro X so I went to the app store went through the whole process and then it stoped at a banner that said final cut pro is already installed on this machine use update, So I tried that multiple times with no luck at all. So finaly I just install the final cut pro trial and that worked great. I speant the last month earning the new program without any problems but now the trial has expired and here I am again trying to purchase the program and I am back to the same old stupid loop, it wont let me purchase the program becuse it is already installed, I dont want to delete final cut 7 becuse I still use it. So what do I do.

Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Uninstall it.  Then go back to the App Store and buy it.  I'll bet it will let you this time.

    Or if you already paid your money (and the transaction went through), then uninstall it, then open the App Store and go to "Purchases."  From there, you can re-install it.

     

    If you do this today (tonight), you may experience some lag time.  The App Store is really busy today/tonight with a lot of people downloading new software.  Apple released updates today to Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, Compressor and iBooks Author.  There are probably a gazillion downloads happening now.

    Of course the other thing toconsider is that the Appp store will not let you purchase/download to your machine if it does not meet the minimum specs required. Check your graphics card against the minimum specs.

    I have been runing final cut pro X trial for a month now without any trouble so I doubt it is a hardware issue

    Tried unistalling now it says ; "Final Cut is already installed on this computer. Choose Software Update from the Apple menu to check for available updates".  But final cut pro x is uninstalled why would it still be saying this?

    OK I found an old 10.0.1 trial copy I never used on the hard drive my bad. This is weird becuse I als had a 10.0.5 trial I was using i didnt think you could do that? So I uninstalled that old 10.0.1 copy. Went to the app store and finaly made it past the first set of issues and then was stopped with an itunes error (100) please try latter followed with a contact itunes support for help with this transaction. I have tried this a dozen times with the same result.
