I purchased an Avid Media Composer [ Software product and received a spreadsheet with an Activation Code. What do I do with it? How do I get my products?

Note: Education Customers may be presented with a Verification Code rather than a System ID and Activation ID. Eligibility for Education pricing must be verified through our partner Identit-e. For instructions on how to use the Verification Code to receive your software license, consult the Student, Teacher, and Institutional Identit-E Validation for Media Composer article.
