I used Migration Assistant to transfer my files and applications from an older Mac to a new one. What issues will I probably deal with on the new system after migration has completed?

Typically, most programs work fine after migration. However, some may need to be uninstalled and/or reinstalled. This may be caused by some parts/processes of applications not being completely transferred. The following is a list of programs with recommendations for resolving issues after a migration.

VirusScan - uninstall and reinstall followed by a reboot

VPN - reinstall only

Parallels Desktop for Mac - may require reinstall and running a tool to clean obsolete Parallels components (available from the Parallels Web site)

Also, remember to deactivate any programs on the older Mac that use activation such as the Adobe Creative Suite software.
