yeah, i came across that issue too when i was trying to solve this problem.
sure enough, my password was too short by today's standards.
so i've updated everything.
still the same issue though, won't let me order
anyone have any other suggestions to make aperture accept my appleid, so i can order?
btw, i've just updated aperture too
Sounds like it might be a problem with their system. It'd probably be best to call them, the Apple online store support number is 1-800-676-2775. I got that info from here: http://store.apple.com/us/help/contact
