    So after finally updating to Movaje almost all 3rd party apps are deregistered. What I mean by that is that I have to enter license/registration numbers in all my apps. All email apps ask for passwords for all accounts.

    Has anything like this happened to anyone else?


    EDITED for clarity.

    Apps such as….

    It would be doing the community a service to identify them.
    I haven't made the jump yet myself.

    I performed an in-place upgrade and so far, I have not run into that issue. Only issue I found was that the dock reverted to a fresh install so all of my apps had to be replaced back on the dock. Registration information remained intact.

    Thank you for your replies. @Gregg2 I have too many apps to list but here's just a few:

    • Hazel
    • All Skylum Photo apps
    • Adobe
    • Microsoft
    • Bartender
    • Hyperdock
    • Snagit

    There are others but like I said too many to go through right now.

    Why would I use that when doing an OS update? I simply update my current rMBP. I wasn’t migrating to a new computer.

    You upgraded the OS, and the installer did not transfer the licenses and other settings. Migration Assistant can do this.

    Okay thanks I didn’t know that. Considering that I’m going to do a clean install I’ll keep that in mind. That is interesting though. I thought it would pass on anything that was installed.
