    Hey everyone,

    I just installed FCS 2 on my Leopard machine and whenever I open Final Cut Pro it asks for the serial number. Why do I have to enter it every time? This never happened with Final Cut 5 on my machine. Please help!

    Thank you.

    Try going to Application Support under Library and trash the Final Cut Studio System ID in the ProApps folder and then relaunching FCP.

    "If you've already serialized your application and downloading an update causes it to stop working, try removing your System ID file and enter your serial number again. The System ID file for your product is located in
    /Library/Application Support/ProApps/

    Remove the appropriate file for your product, then launch the application and enter your serial number again."
