Some manufacturers offer workarounds. For example, Macromedia Inc., the maker of graphics applications such as the Flash, Director and Fireworks product lines, has posted a note that Macintosh users upgrading to Tiger using the "Archive and Install" or "Erase and Install" options will need to reactivate previously installed Macromedia products. Macromedia says the company is working with Apple to resolve this issue.
