Maybe just maybe there is a chance, if you have a good internet connection download the latest iMovie Updater from Apple and try to install it, you were legally the owner of the former version which you could update to the latest one so I don't see anything illegal in it to do it this way.You're right I did wipe it. I had to because I had to reformat the drive. I just guessed the software would have installed from my disc. Shame it didn't. Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll be looking for an open source alternative.
