Applications :: Moving Adobe Programs With Serial Number?
Dec 23, 2010
I am going to purchase a MacBook Pro and would like to transfer all of my Adobe Programs (InDesign, Bridge and Photoshop CS3) to it from my current MacBook. I have the serial number but do not have the CD.
What is the best way to move these programs? Time Machine, Migration Assistant, drag and drop?
I bought a refurb iMac directly from apple 2 years ago. It already came with Adobe Photoshop as well as many others. I didn't start using the photoshop until recently. Yesterday, I logged on, and asked me for a serial number. Where would I find this or how do I obtain this since it came with the iMac?
Does the logic board serial number match the computer serial number?
My reason for asking is that 4 months ago my sisters G5 17" logic board supposedly got replaced with a new or refurbished logic board but it seems by the workmanship of the board something fishy is going on.
so i have office mac installed on two macs, but i didnt keep track of which serial numbers i used, and if i want to install it on another mac, i dont know what serial number to enter. is there a way to check on the computers?
I have a quick question about the iWork '09 Retail box (for those of you who bought it). I downloaded the iWork '09 trial from Apple's website. When I launched Pages I was greeted with the Buy or Try screen. I bought myself a serial number. I have noticed now, that when I go into any iWork app if I click Pages/Keynote/Numbers in the menubar next to the Apple logo, I get the menu for About, Preferences, Register iWork, Quit, etc. I know that the retial box copies no longer require a serial number. My question is this: does the retail iWork disc still show "Try iWork..." as a greyed out menu option under the Pages/Keynote/Numbers menu? For the trial (that was bought with a legit serial, it does) So I was wondering if the retial box version does also? Like this:
I have macbook pro 10.4 with iWork '08. I plan to get the serial number key to fully activate it. I went through the apple store but couldn't locate anything helpful to help me get the serial number key for the iWork '08, i only found the serial number key for iWork '09. Would the keys for '09 works with '08?
I bought iWork09 (family) and I have installed it but when I open any apps it asks for a serial number. I have checked on the box and online and looks like it doesn't come with a serial number, I mean you don't need it.
I downloaded the trial of iWork '09 and I really like it. It complements Office 2008 really well, better in some ways. Anyway, I want to purchase it from the Apple Store. I can either purchase a serial number that is emailed to me to enter into the trial version or a boxed version that is shipped to me. Which way should I go? I guess if I get the boxed, I have to install the trial and reinstall from the DVD or something? Is getting the serial number just as good?
My 2006 iMac died a couple of months ago and I got a 13" MBP for Christmas. Yesterday I was working on installing everything on it and started to install FCE, which yes I did buy perfectly legally ;-)
Anyway I seem to have misplaced the booklet with the serial number on it so I can't complete the install. If I call Apple support will they be able to give me another serial? I'd hate to think I've wasted $200 just because I lost a $.50 booklet that came with it. I have a full backup of my iMac on an external drive so I don't know if maybe there is a library file or something that I could use to recover my password? I just thought I'd pose the question here before calling them because I'm sure their hold times are crazy this time of year.
I installed a trial of iWork 09 yesterday to get a feel for it, liked it so went out today and purchased the box from my local Apple Store. I know about the whole not needing a serial number now however it is asking me for one since the install on all three applications. I removed the trial and all evidence of it and restarted my macbook before installing the box.
I just downloaded CheckBook Pro (I think it was 3.0? I'm not sure), but when i start it up, its asking for a serial number, but I can just click on cancel to go past it. Anyone know how long I can use this until it requires for me to purchase it?
I recently bought Rapidweaver and received the package today. I installed it, entered all the pertinent information including my email and the serial number, registered, and then went upstairs for lunch. Came back down and found that my cute little golden retriever had decided that the envelope, not the box, and not the little booklet... was tasty, so she ate it. I'm left with some cellophane and tiny wet pieces of white paper and no serial number! The software was installed and it is working just fine, and when I "unlocked" or activated it, it said OK, everything is done. Fortunately, the CD was in the Mac while Daisy had some fun.
I don't need to reinstall... but unlike other software (or on a PC in the registry) where you can look in the "about" section and see your serial number, the SN is not shown in the about window. I'm not about to phone the UK over this, but just for security's sake, I'd like to know how to retrieve the serial number on my mac so I can write it down inside the booklet and put it up high.

My FCP 7 keeps on asking me about my serial number. I've thrown that box a long time ago. How can I retrieve the serial number? Also, I don't want to move on to FCP x. Such a horrible interface and system. I want my FCP 7 back. Is there a place where I can download it again. There doesn't seem to be a download software or software available in the market anymore for FCP 7.
Sounds easy. Problem is, it's an internal hard drive in an external enclosure, currently in a 5+hour process of a clone job. I want to get the serial number off it without having to stop the cloning, take apart the external enclosure, and finding the serial number.
System Profiler > Firewire shows me SOME info on the hard drive, but not the serial number.
Anyone know of a way to get that serial number? Maybe a freeware app or something? I've struck out so far.
Today when I tried to find the serial number of my MacBook in "About This Mac" and System Profiler it says Serial Number System Sal#. I haven't replaced the logic board or had any service done and I'm wondering why it would suddenly disappear like this. My MacBook also has not been "sleeping" when the battery gets low, the computer just shuts off without the low power sleep state it usually goes into around ~1% battery left.
Today I got an iBook G4 (M9164LL/A) from a friend. When I went into the "About This Mac" menu, the serial number was not displayed (it just said 'Serial Number' when I clicked through). I went into "System Profiler" and got the same results - no serial number. After doing some research on the Internet it seems that the logic board may have been replaced. I am currently reinstalling Tiger to see if that clears it up. If not, does anybody know where I can download the utility to reset the serial number? I bet the Genius Bar wouldn't have the utility and would charge to send it to their repair center.
I recently purchased an upgrade download for windows 7 online. i ended up buying windows 7 professional but now realize it's not eligible for an upgrade from windows vista home basic, only custom install. My question is, if i were to obtain a copy of the windows 7 home upgrade instead of pro, can i use the serial number i purchased for windows 7 professional on a win7 home install, or are they specific to version?
I recently had my MBP taken to the Geek Squad to have the optical drive replaced under the extended warranty through BestBuy (which I didn't know I was getting BestBuy's warranty, not the AppleCare). When I sent it in, they replaced the bottom casing, optical drive, and the logicboard. When I got it back, I noticed that my serial number for my MBP is missing, they didn't enter the number when they replaced the logicboard. Is there a way so I can personally enter my serial number back into my MBP. I figure if I go back to BB, they will send my MBP off to the service center in Kentucky or something.
