Mac Help?

I have a problem I can’t solve on my own. When I moved from an older Mac to the new MacBook, I transfered the software, including BBEdit and Transmit. I had the software on CDs, reinstalled it on the new machine, got the proper codes, magic words, and licenses numbers. But each time I respond to the “there’s a new version available” prompts from either of these programs, I’m told I don’t have permission to install the new program. Yes, I’ve changed all the permissions to my id for both apps. Any ideas?

One thought on “Mac Help?”

  1. I’m not sure what you mean by “I’ve changed all the permissions to my id”. Is this a Mac permissions thing or a problem with the apps themselves? Did you transfer the software or reinstall the software?

    It’s sounding to me like a Mac permissions issue, but I’m kinda confused on the sequence of events. Feel free to ping me via chat if you’re still having trouble…
