Hi Simon,

The expert your requested is currently offline.
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question.

This problem can occur if you are using an older version of Final Cut Pro.
Check online for any updates to your current version and install them.

Let me know if that helps.

Pete.

Hi Pete, thanks for your answer.


I have been away for a couple of days.


Resolving this is a matter of urgency, for reasons I shan't bother to go into.


But when I found the latest apple free upgrade for Final Cut Pro and started to download it, this message appeared.


 


Your computer’s video card does not meet the minimum system requirements.


 


how can I upgrade my video card?


 


It's a 4 year old Mac, but I have the latest version of Mountain Lion operating it, and a new hard disk drive just put in.

Hi Simon,
You may still be able to upgrade without upgrading the video card.
1. Go to the Mac App store.
2. Go to the update tab.
You will see the FCP icon waiting to install.
3. Click the sub-menu tab and select the "Try Update in an hour" option from the sub-menu.
4. Leave the app store window open and came back in one hour.
At that time, you should see FCP begin to upgrade without any error.

Where is the sub men tab?


none of the tabs seem to show "Try update in an hour"


Simon

Expert:  Pete replied 3 years ago.
This option will only show if a restart is required after the update.
Do you see any message about a restart?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

hi Pete, no message about an restart required seen anywhere.


Where do I go from here?


Sims

Expert:  Pete replied 3 years ago.
Hi Simon,
The option may not be showing for your version.
Lets try a different approach: try installing the update in Safe Mode.
To get into Safe Mode, shut down your iMac, then press and hold the Shift key and continue to hold it while you turn on the iMac.
Release the Shift key once you see the login window or the desktop.

Pete,


I have tried all the options.


No joy.


I am going for a complete upgrade of the hardware refit for my aged iMac!


Thanks for your help anyway.
