When I purchased my iMac 21.5" in Jan 2011 it was already loaded with iLife (Garageband, iWeb, iPhoto, iMovies) - I have the applications discs and never had to use it.


I have seen this solution but I don't get the option to Accept:


Launch the App Store and sign into your account. Then go to the "Purchased" tab. Here the iLife applications should be waiting for you to be accepted. Click the "Accept" button. This will register them to your current account. Now you should be ablet to upgrade them using the App Store.


See: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718

  1. Double-click the App Store icon in the dock.
  2. Enter your Apple ID and password.
  3. Click Purchases.
  4. If you haven't previously accepted your bundled iLife applications within the Mac App Store, you should see your iLife applications appear in the Accept portion of the screen. Click Accept.
  5. You may be asked for your Apple ID and password once again. Your iLife applications now move to the Purchased section. These applications are part of the software that came with your Lion based computer. Your account will not be charged for them. Click Install to complete installation of your applications.

My concern is that if I upgrade to Mountain Lion, will I have problems with missing iLife applications as I still want to use them?
