Maybe some of you are as slow as I am to update your Operating System — maybe not. It always scares me to death … I just can't afford any down time at all with the rate of speed I work at. So yes, I'm just getting ready to upgrade from Jaguar (OS 10.2.8) to Panther. And yes, Tiger is coming. But it will be a while before I adopt that kitty. I like to let other people work out the bugs and find out which programs don't yet work.
Here's my plan. With Studio MX 2004's product activation scheme, I have to transfer my program licenses before reinstalling or upgrading my operating system. Activation has gone pretty smoothly for most people. But to avoid any problems, I'm going to complete the following steps I found a while back (I will be brave…I will be brave…):
- In Dreamweaver MX 2004, choose Help > Activation > Transfer License and deactivate the license on your computer. (In Flash MX 2004 or Fireworks MX 2004, choose Help > Transfer Your Software License.)
- Install Panther.
- Relaunch your Studio MX 2004 applications and reactivate them.
Generally, activation and deactivation require about 30 seconds or less. Wish me luck!
