    I just bought a new version of iWork and wanted to change the product serial number to my new one. Is there a way to go in and update it with the new number? Thanks!

    So... you had a pirated copy of iWork '08 with a pirated serial and now have the real thing and want to change your pirated serial to the real one?

    I don't believe there is a way to change the serial number. Though, can't you uninstall the program and reinstall it again with whatever serial number you want?

    The serial is held in /Library/Preferences/com.apple.iwork08.plist

    (that's the library folder off the root of your hard drive - NOT the one in your user directory).

    You can either edit the plist and replace the serial, or just delete it for iWork to ask you for a new serial on next launch
