    I'm trying to install FC Studio 2 on my new MBP but when you pop in the install DVD, the "install final cut pro" icon is greyed out (looks like an alias). I tried the disc on 3 different mac today and had the same problem - I couldn't double-click on the install icon to install FCP...so weird.

    Yesterday I tried and successfully installed it on our 2 macs there...just not at home.

    Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I could try to get this working?

    Thanks in advance!

    you can legally install it on a desktop and one laptop....
    so that might be your answer...

    The disc wouldn't have a way of knowing it was installed already, so I'd have to disagree that that's the answer.

    Unless the software activates online, which I don't think it even does.

    Are you trying to install an upgrade or a full version?
