Final cut cannot be installed cause of double entry

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


Final Cut is already installed on my laptop as the error said. The problem is that I cannot find it anywhere on my laptop. I tried to buy it and this appears, and from Software Update I cannot find it to see any available updates. Can anyone help me please to fix this error ? What is wrong with Final Cut ?

Thank you !

Final Cut is already installed on this computer. Choose software Update from the Apple menu to check for available updates.

Verify again that Final Cut is really not installed on your computer. Open Finder then navigate to the Applications folder and then check if the Final Cut app is in there. If the app is already there, try running it and see if it’s working. You will encounter this error after purchasing Final Cut Pro from the Mac App Store and then you install it and then after that it lists as “Install” instead of “Installed”.

And then because you noticed that it is listed as “Install”, you then click Install to install it again and then you get the message. When you see “Installed”, it means the app is already installed on your computer and when you see “Install”, it means the app is not yet installed and you need to install it.

Though the app lists as “Install” try running it first to see if it is working or not. If it is working then just ignore it. You may also try checking for an update. Click on the Apple menu then select Software Update. If you see two available add-ins for Final Cut Pro or any available update for Final Cut, install it then restart the computer.

Next, go to the search icon then enter without quotes “final cut”. Select the program from the result and see if the app starts. You probably get this error after purchasing and installing Final Cut because the application is still waiting for the update or updates to be installed.
