After installing Aperture 3 following a hard drive failure I can't remember where the serial number is located on the packaging. Anyone know?


MacBook Pro 15", 4GB RAM, 2.66GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.5)

It's in the package, not on it. Look on the back of the "Installing Your Software" booklet.

And if you use a password tool like 1Password, it has a software section where you can store important things like software purchase info and serial numbers.

    If for some reason you can't find the S/N, you can request help from Apple here. However you'll still need to provide proof of purchase. Details at the linked site.

    I know this doesn't help in your current situation, but it's a good practice. I keep a text file with all the serial numbers for all my software, and I type every one of them twice to make sure I have them typed in correctly.  I can pull up the serial number from Aperture 1.1 or Photoshop CS1. This is important because some vendors want your "legacy" serial number when you upgrade.  While I doubt that Adobe will ask for my CS1 serial at this point, I can show proof of ownership dating back to 2000 if there is ever a question.  Of course, this file has multiple backups.
