This solved it for me.
I was using the iWork DVD.
x100000000000. saved me from some serious potential frustration. thanks!
this worked for me!!
This worked for me...
I hope they do too.
I bought Keynote then the system caught up and pages/numbers became free updates.
I hope they refund my NZ$24 back
I can confirm that the upgrade even works on illegitimate versions of iWork 09. Thankyou Apple for legitimising my software. Haters gonna hate.
Most amazing keynote in years. Master is pleased.
Thank you SO much! This is what finally worked for me.
Same here, let me know if you find anything out
Same here, it retained my old iWork suite, Garageband and iMovie.
Both versions seem to work, I'm tempted to keep a copy of the old iMovie until I get used to the new one, but I assume it's safe to delete the older apps?
The only old app that it did not keep was iPhoto?
Updates just started to push through for me. Give it some time.
Pro tip: This works whether or not you previously owned the apps. It treats any new account created on a Mac as a "new" Mac, evidently, and all the Apps are pre-installed. Seems weird that these apps are evidently embedded in the OS and yet the MAS doesn't just make them free to all users. Either way, this worked for me. As soon as I signed in to the new account, it tied the iWork apps to my Apple ID. I now own them. Thanks, Apple!
Early 2008 24" iMac
Just upgraded the above to Mavericks without a problem. Downloaded the free upgrades to the 3 iWorks Apps and iPhoto without a hitch. Can't download iMovie because it says my video card won't qualify. Anyone else having this problem?
I'm not complaining a 5-½ year old Mac running the latest and greatest OS is pretty cool, not to mention the FREE software upgrades.
Did the 'create new user account' detailed earlier in the theead to jog the system and not only is iWork now updated and listed under Purchased in the MAS but so is Aperture. Both from DVD installs. Way to go Apple
WTH, it cost money, a have a macbook pro from 2011 . Why I can't update it?
Still doesn't work for me either. Only GarageBand has the update.
Same story. I'm not getting the ability to upgrade.
I've created a new Apple ID account, I've created new user accounts, I've moved the Apps out of the iWord 09 folder.
Did Apple maybe fix this "bug"?
Tried out all possibilities and none worked.
My gpu does not meet the min req for imovie. I cannot install.
Yes I have the iMovie issue as well.
If u create a new account, u must go under purchases and re-download it.
MAS shows all updates for me. Updated successfully and did not purchase any of these apps. (Apart from iLife which is from the DVD)
About GarageBand. You must "purchase" the new free version on MAS. It didn't show the update for it.
And also after update, it shows iWork and iLife apps under purchases tab, like i buy it from MAS.
I think we just need to hang tight until apple patches this whole thing up. I don't even use the iLife suite aside from iPhoto, which I use for photo stream. I can wait.
I installed iLife and iWork from DVD and all applications have been updated.
Yes, surprisingly. In the past I always had to update iWork through Software update and not through the App Store. But after installing Mavericks, all iLife and iWork programs were in the App Store. I had to enter my password for EACH one, which was odd, but they all updated for free.
How about Apple removing hyper links in Pages. I'm writing a book with internal and external links. They are all gone. You can link words to URL's in a very cack-handed way but all my links I have spent days doing have gone. Shafted again by Apple who seems to know better. Oh well, back to the old version.
This is what solves the problem. Needs to get a sticky on the forum.
This worked just fine for me on my iMac and Macbook Air with iWork 09 originally installed from disc. I just upgraded to Mavericks and checked for updates in the MAS, downloaded all updates and no problems at all. I ran into some apparent glitches during Mavericks update and/or apps download, but once it was all complete everything was fine. Before upgrading to Mavericks it did look as though I had to purchase them, just be aware Mavericks is required.
