After installing Aperture on my new Mac from a Time Machine backup, Aperture asks for the serial number every time I restart my computer. I have to enter both the upgrade number and the original number every time, so this is a bit frustrating. So long I don't restart, I can quit Aperture and open it without any problems. I originally purchased Aperture 2 back in 2009 I think, and I don't have the original CD anymore. I have now upgraded to the newest version, but I can not re-download it from the App Store.


After some googling I have tried to delete the ProAppsSystemID file and repaired permissions without any help.
