    Mountain Lion gone from App Store

    I've just discovered that Apple appear to have removed Mountain Lion from the App Store (despite the fact that this is a paid for app!). I desperately need a copy in order to complete the image I am creating for next week. Not ready for Mavericks yet, as it doesn't work properly with Workgroup Manager.

    Anyone know if there is a legal download I can use for this?! Sometimes I think Apple really hates network admins!

    Probably to do with this. Apple Selling $20 OS X Lion and Mountain Lion in Online Store - Mac Rumors

    Give them an email to their store email address and they can probably sort it out for you?

    Hi,

    If you've already purchased it, then it should be available to download from the 'Purchases' tab on the Mac App Store (like shown below).

    It appears on my list, but when I click the download button I get a 1004 error. When I click the name, it says: This item is not currently available in the UK Store. Does the download work for you?

    Thanks.

    Make sure you are downloading on a mac old enough to have been shipped with Lion on it. I tried to DL a backup copy on my Mini, which came with ML and failed, giving me the error that the computer is too new to use this OS.

    Thanks everyone. All working now. Tried a third mac and it downloaded without issues. Still won't work on the other two but not sure why. They are all the same age and model and have the same image installed. Oh well! As long as it works I'm happy.
