I recently did a clean installation of Mountain Lion onto a new SSD installed in my MacPro.  I re-installed all of the applications from scratch, including Aperture and pulled over the contents of my home directory using Migration Assistant.


Now, whenever I launch Aperture, I'm prompted to enter my user information (including serial number).  Since I upgraded to Aperture 3 from 2.0, i can't just enter the Aperture 3 serial number, I have to enter both the 2.0 and 3.0 serial numbers.  My purchase of this software goes back to the day when there was no App Store, so I have to go back to the printed serial numbers on the boxes, not just re-download from the App Store.  This is a huge inconvenience and any suggestions where to look to make it stop would be greatly appreciated.
