Were you just using the trial or had you purchased it (it was fully functional during the 30-day trial period)? I don't know off-hand which file it's stored in. I can poke around, though.it didnt pick up my license is there any where that it would be saved on my computer
where do i find that file atWere you just using the trial or had you purchased it (it was fully functional during the 30-day trial period)? I don't know off-hand which file it's stored in. I can poke around, though.
edit: Looks like the key is in ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iWork09.plist. Unless you manually deleted it, it should have been there for the new install.
Something in the back of my head remembers the retail box doesn't require a key. Maybe someone else can verify. That means you might not have the plist file I mentioned.i purchased it with my snow leopard disc and cant find them ....i was cleaning up some files and mistakley drag the iworks 09 to the trash and then emptied my trash..... i downloaded the trail one just now but it has not recognized my license
But you said you bought it with SL and couldn't find the discs...anyone else have any ideas ......i bought the laptop used and I do not remember the guys name i bought it from.............am i screwed and going to have to buy spend the $79 to get this program back..i have no apple care left either
That's more for a drive that's failed, where it won't mount and the directory is unrepairable. It's possible it might find the old version, but if you've been using the machine there's a good chance those sectors got overwritten. Also, the apps aren't individual files - they're packages with many, many, files inside.i do not know where I put them I have been looking all over the place for them......I got them when I bought it but since have moved and do not know where I put them
would a data recovery like stellar phoenix work?????
why would you need to buy it again? we just need to consolidate the correct info and advice here.so basically try calling apple tomorrow and if that fails then I have to buy iworks 09 again??
