After asking to use DVD drive on my PC and getting a confirmation (which takes a long time) on my PC I get a Disk Picture in my Finder on my macbook air. When I click to open the CD, it says the original file of iWork cannot be found. However it is the original because I bought it at the store where I bought my Mac Air at. What is the problem?

Edit: It is working now, it took like 10 minutes though after i clicked get original, as i only had an alias?

I know it's working now but this is a thought of mine.

If you bought iWork '09 legally, you can download the trial of it

http://www.apple.com/iwork/download-trial/


then at installation, just enter the serial number from the box.

If you download it, there's a serial.
If you buy on DVD, there's no serial. There use to be when they were first released, but apple got rid of it :D

I'm sure Apple assumes the average Joe/Jane who buys the physical media isn't going to send it offer to a dozen people.

Besides it's all about a seemless experience right? So no key means no hassle or activations.
