Thanks, Frank, but I went that route yesterday. I have both my order_acknolwedgement and shipping_notification for Aperture 1.5 (Feb 2007) and Apple will NOT take those as proof of purchase! It seems you have to keep the original invoice. Who keeps invoices for 5 years?
When I try to go to Apple order services (since I do have an order number), all I get is "Apple Order Services Are Busy Try Again Later" (yesterday and today).
I have never had such trouble getting a legitimate copy of software to work. I founded and grew a software company of my own with over 250,000 users and we'd be out of business treating legitimate customers this way.
I'll pay 150 for LIghtroom 4 and all the hassle of moving over to it rather than give Apple an unneccessary additional 79 dollars to get my bought and paid for copy of Aperture to work.
