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.
Where is the sub men tab?
none of the tabs seem to show "Try update in an hour"
hi Pete, no message about an restart required seen anywhere.
Where do I go from here?
I have tried all the options.
I am going for a complete upgrade of the hardware refit for my aged iMac!
Thanks for your help anyway.
