    Angry Can't open appstore apps after migrating computers
    I just got a new computer at work and used the installation process of Lion to copy my apps and documents from m old computer to the new computer. Now when I open apps I previously purchased from the appstore, such as sparrow and textwrangler, I get the attached prompt. I enter my apple id and password, and click sign in, and nothing happens. The app doesn't open, I don't get an error, just nothing. The next time I try to open the app, I get the prompt again.

    Please advise.

    When a similar issue occurs on the iPhone or iPad, I recommend people download a free application of some sort, doesn't matter which one. When prompted to enter credentials, the new application should begin downloading and the other apps should now be unlocked as well.

    EvenStranger. Seemed like a good idea and I was prompted to update my billing information, when I downloaded the new app, but I still can't open my existing apps. Guess I will have to uninstall them.
