I just copied Garageband on a memory stick from a friends new iMac to my older Macbook Pro which I recently updated (clean install) to Mountain Lion. Unfortunately, during the upgrade I lost GarageBand.
After double clicking on GarageBand within the memory stick on my older Macbook Pro it is now coming up with:
"Thank you for purchasing and downloading GarageBand from the Mac App store."
It then proceeded to download the rest of the app.
I'm a bit confused as to why this worked. I was wondering:
- Have I accidentally bought the app (even though I don't believe I'm currently signed into the Mac app store with my Apple ID)?
- Or have I somehow just stolen my friend's version?
