Updater Problems With Final Final Cut Pro 3.0.2f1

Apple has added a new article to the Knowledge Base regarding the Final Cut Pro 3.0.4 updater not updating some copies of Final Cut Pro 3.0.2. Appleis Knowledge Base (sometimes referred to as the KBase) is a central location for all of Appleis support documents and other important information.

Some users of Final Cut Pro may find that the new updater will not update their copy of Final Cut Pro 3.0.2. This is due to some copies being mistakenly labeled as 3.0.2f1. The solution is to call AppleCare technical support. From Apple:


When running the 3.0.4 updater, you receive the following error message:

This is not a version of Final Cut Pro which can be updated. (err 2)

When looking at the version number of the 3.0.2 software in the splash screen or the Finder "get info" window, it shows "3.0.2f1" instead of "3.0.2".
