    I just did a Migration Assitant transfer of applications, mainly Microsoft Office, from my MBP to my wife's new MBP. Everything seems to be working normally on my end as it did before the transfer. Is there anything I'm missing about MA? Did it JUST copy the apps from my computer to hers? Does it move anything from my computer? Could I have corrupted something in the transfer?

    The only way to transfer everything is to restore from a Time Machine backup. Migration assistant only moves the apps. You still have to log into everything and re-enter some keys to activate some software.

    For MS apps, you have to re-authenticate them either way.
