NEW MAC PRO: Fresh install on Mavericks, won't upgrade to 7.0.3

I just received my brand new Mac Pro. Everything has installed just fine. I found the "Pro Applications Update 2010-02" on Apple.com (support.apple.com/kb/dl949), installed it, restarted, but nothing updated. FCP is still v7.0.

I'm afraid I won't be able to open my old FCP files that were edited on 7.0.3 if I don't figure this out. Other than that, the only problem I've run into is that Color flickers when playing back footage.

The update worked fine for me and I'm running 7.0.3 on and 8 core D500 machine. I did need to open the unknown software publisher settings in Security before it would install.

I actually figured it out. Somebody on the Apple boards suggested I pull the applications out of the "Final Cut Studio" folder that FCPX throws them into. The update didn't know where to look for the applications. After moving them directly into the Applications folder, the update worked just fine, and Color is no longer glitching.

So, y'all are running ok on the New Mac Pro? I've been looking around and haven't found much information.

It's been running perfectly. I play 5K footage like it's 240p.
