I am trying to load aperture 3 on my new imac.  When I enter the serial number it gives me the message "You have entered an upgrade serial number.  Please enter your original serial number".  What I am entering is the original serial number that came with aperture 3.  A couple of things that maybe important to note is that I have used both aperture 1 &2 prior to installing aperture 3.  As well, I am currently running aperture 3 on two additional machines which I will be slowly fazing out. 


Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Thanks, Shane
