  • 4.6 Clean Install on New Workstation

    Have 2 or 3 Edius 3.x licenses.

    Will have a new workstation this week and would like to use one of the Edius 3.x licenses to upgrade to 4.6.

    Was wondering if there is a way just to buy the upgrade and then do a full one time clean install from CD or DVD instead of all the steps noted in the forum.

    Remember mention that an .ISO might be available soon for a one step install of 4.6

    The ISO should be up within the next hour or so.

    It's 2GB, so I wouldn't plan to be up and running any time soon..

      thanks much Kenneally.

      Any chance of a DVD when purchasing the upgrade from San Jose sales?

        Physical product with EDIUS 4.6 won't be available from the factory until early March, but we may not stock them in the San Jose warehouse until all of our current inventory is exhausted. Since there are several upgrade options, we may not be totally 4.6'd until late March.

        I would buy the upgrade, download the 4.6 ISO, install from the ISO and plig in the dongle. Maybe burn the ISO to your own DVD...? Just thinking out loud here....

          Thanks Chris and Kenneally- one of our internet connections is very fast so probably will go that route as advised. So glad that you guys came up with a full install instead of the myriad of steps to get there.

          What is the upgrade process since a physical dongle (or 2 for broadcast version) are required. Just call sales in San Jose and they ship out the dongle(s)?

            Chris,
            If I download the Broadcast 4.6 version, and install on a clean unit, will this negate the need to use the Edius Pro and Broadcast dongle? Hopefully, it will work as a full version and just need the broadcast dongle.
            Any thoughts?

              You will still need both dongles. It's the license on the dongles that counts...not the software.

                  But I think you can combine the two dongles into one using the Edius License Manager utility, correct? The new dongles included with Broadcast can handle multiple licenses, and the old dongle would wind up being empty, but you'd free up one USB port.

                    ^ Yeah that's possible...but as mentioned a few times, if you lose that dongle, you lose both the Broadcast license and the Edius application license itself...so that's about $1,000 worth of software :(

                      I think you only end up with 2 dongles when you upgrade from standard to broadcast

                      in my case, I bought broadcast in the first place, so it only came with 1 dongle

                        But that is no different if you had bought Brooadcast originally. If I had 2, I would go the one dongle route.

                          Yeah. I'd go with 1 dongle too, either way I don't do much mobile editing via a laptop so the dongle is just in the rear USB port of my workstation(s)

                            In a way that would be more reliable than needing two functioning dongles -- you are reducing the number of potential points of failure.

                              My dongle sits straight on the Motherboard, the Intel S5000XVN has a USB port (not only jumpers) so all my dongle's reside inside the server casing.
                              That I think is as safe as you can get ...........
