    iLife '09 on iMac with iLife '08
    So, I just bought a new MacBook Pro and got the Applications DVD - which has iLife '09 on it.

    I already own an iMac which is running iLife '08 on it. How can I update the iLife on my iMac to the current '09 version?

    When I put the Applications DVD in my iMac - and double click the Installed Bundled Software icon - I get a message that says:

    Alert:

    These applications are either already installed on your computer or this computer is not compatible with this disc. Make sure you're using the installation discs that came with your computer.


    Is there any way around this roadblock?

    uhh... thanks Clay...

    I was looking for a way to do it without having to pay the extra $79.

    Any other takers?

    I understand what you want to do but no one here is going to help you pirate software and that is what you would be doing by using iLife09 without a license for your iMac . Sorry but its just not that kind of forum.

    Pay close attention to #4 on that list.
