I recently backed up my computer and did a complete OS reinstall (starting from stratch and not using the old image due to old corruption files). I then decided to manualy copy over Logic Pro 9 files from the backup drive to the new image. I went to open Logic and it asked for my serial number. I typed it in and then it decided to crash on me. Well no big deal, I probably didn't copy all the files. So I deleted as many files as I could find and then proceded to reinstalling Logic 9 from my Logic Studio disc set. Entered name and the serial key during the beggining of the install and it says "Serial Number Not Valid" and asked me to type it again and gives me the same message. After 3 failed attempts, it closes the installation program. I have tripple checked my spelling in the key and have checked forums regarding this problem. I have already attempted to move the ID files in Library/Application Support/ProApps to the desktop; no change. Any input would be nice. Thank you.
Then there's the human side.. I beta tested for a great company, one of the original MIDI manufacturers and got to know the people. I watched their company slowly go under, let go of employees mainly because their software was cracked heavily. They tried to make is easy on the user by using only serial number validation. It was pirated to such an extent that most professionals were using cracked versions. It was difficult to witness the disappointment owners and employees suffered as they lost faith in what they were doing because of the lack of consumer support. This was the kind of company that provided comprehensive manuals and expert phone support.
Hello. I have 2 identical MacPros. I bought 2 licenses (2 serial numbers) of Logic Studio 9 and many many plugins. I installed Logic and plugins on first machine and created image of whole Macintosh HD and copy to my second MacPro. I authorized all plugins on second computer, everything works fine BUT Logic Pro 9 wants a serial number after start. If i enter the serial number, Logic Says: This serial number is not valid. I tried both my serial numbers - both without success. Please could you help me? Thank you very much. 2b1af7f3a8
