Hi Folks,


I have recently purchased ARD to help administer a suit of iMAC and 6 MAC Book Pros. I have an issue with Final Cut Express 4, in that it requires the licence information on application start up. I originally created an image with all of the software pre-installed and everything works apart from the licencing of FCE. I was hoping that ARD would solve the issue.


I have tried to copy the existing FCE ID file from the ProApps folder from one computer to another – however it must hash the licence with system ID or something else as it still requires the licence info at start up? As suggested in another thread.


So is there any way to install FCE 4 without the need to manually enter the product key?


The Mac are running mountain lion and are all intel based.


Any help or info would be very much appreciated.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
