The problem is not the software, the problem is mac os.

You need to back up all your files , then do a complete installation of Mac Os.

According to apple´s support if you install Final Cut Studio 2 after having installed Logic Studio, the option to install Final Cut Pro may be dimmed so that it is not possible to install Final Cut Pro. Other applications can be installed.
This particular issue specifically occurs on systems on which Logic Studio has already been installed.

Resolution

Take the following steps to resolve this issue:
If it is still running, quit the Final Cut Studio Installer.
In Finder, navigate to /Library/Receipts/.
Locate the file named ProMediaIO.pkg and drag it to the Trash.
Run the Final Cut Studio Installer again.

    Also, if Logic is not the problem follow the steps below to completely reinstall a fresh copy of Final Cut Express.

    Open the Applications folder. 
    Drag the Final Cut Express application to the Trash. 
    Go to /Library/Receipts. 
    In the Receipts folder, select the "FinalCutExpress.pkg" file. 
    Choose View > as List to view the contents in a list. 
    Click the Date Modified column header so you can easily see all of the receipts that were installed at the same time as Final Cut Express. 
    Drag the FinalCutExpress.pkg receipt to the Trash, as well as any other items that have a modification date within 3 minutes of the FinalCutExpress.pkg's modification date. 
    Click the Name column header to sort the list alphabetically. 
    Drag any other receipts whose names begin with "Final Cut Express" to the Trash. 
    Insert your Final Cut Express installation disc and install Final Cut Express. 
    When finished, use Software Update (under the Apple menu) to update your software to the latest version.

    Are you sure you purchased the correct upgrade version 3?

    uninstall the previous version of your software and reinstall it new version then install anti virus

    -If you open Final Cut Express HD 3.0 on certain computers, you'll get a
    "Configuration Error" message that indicates that your computer is
    missing certain hardware or software, or possibly an AGP graphics card.

    In some cases the Final Cut Server client application may not open when
    you double-click the Final Cut Server.jnlp icon or Final Cut Server.app
    icon. This may happen after switching user accounts or restarting your
    computer from a volume other than the one you used to download the Java
    Web Start Final Cut Server client.



    Final Cut Server uses configuration data which refers to the
    administrative user that installed the software. This configuration
    data contains the User ID (UID) which is different than the username of
    the administrative user. There may be situations where the Final Cut
    Server configuration data does not match any existing UIDs of local
    administrative users. For proper functionality, make sure that the UID
    in the Final Cut Server configuration data matches the appropriate
    administrative user's UID.

    A new serial number can be generated in the event that yours is missing
    or invalid. Apple requires a valid proof of purchase to request a
    replacement serial number submitted via fax or email. The following
    guidelines will help you to determine what is best for you.Categories: Apple, Final Cut Studio

How to edit with final cut express from a flash disk


Generally speaking you cannot do this. Flash disks cannot transfer data fast enough for video editing. You need to put the media files on a hard drive, preferable one with 7200 rpm (though some 5400 rpm drives will work).

Final Cut Pro installation problem


At the risk of being too simple, it really sounds like the Serial Number is not valid -
Check O's and I's - try zeros and ones
Better, copy the serial number from a place where you know it is correct, then paste it into the first box - it should paste correctly into all the boxes and you should get an OK button ...
Or paste the individual sets of numbers into each box if you need to ...
Good luck, hope you get it worked out!
