    I purchased iWork with my macbook pro in 2010 before the app store was out. I have since lost the disc for iWork. Is there anyway asides from purchasing iWork twice to get iWork from the app store?

    Thanks for your help.

    I called Apple Support about this same issue earlier today, and it seems that if we bought iWork as a physical DVD, we're out of luck when it comes to the app store, because they're technically two different versions, even though the software is exactly the same. I'm kind of irritated by this. Has anybody been able to find a solution to this that doesn't involve buying the original discs?

    I guess I'll wait for the next iWork revision.

    I emailed App Store Support about this problem, but with Aperture. I had my serial number though...but they emailed me an App Store redemption code and now I have the App Store version linked to my account for future reinstalls.

    Might try emailing them? They might have a registration record for you that they can verify to issue you a code.
