I don't really undersand why you did that, but...
One detail of the single-user retail license for After Effects is that you can activate twice. This is intended for you to have one instnace installed and activated on your desktop computer and another on your laptop, but there's no reason that you couldn't use this same feature to install and activate on both of your partitions.
Why I did what? FCP7 projects aren't backwards useable, and our other two edit machines use 6 (one is non-Intel, so it can't even go to FCP7). So, FCP7 needed to be isolated. Plus there was an upgrade to Snow Leopard on that partition.
Unfortunately, our MBP has the other activation on it.
Ah. I didn't realize that FCP 6 couldn't exist on the same system as FCP 7. I'm used to having CS3, CS4, and CS5 versions of our software installed (and even running) simultaneously on the same system.
Yes, the goodnesses of Apple to it's users. Not like production companies would need to work with multiple versions to suit their client's needs or anything.
Thanks for the help. I'll just have to reboot when I need AE & FCP7 for the immediate future.
