Old MacBook Pro died ... problems setting up new MacBook Pro

Recommended Posts

My 2018 laptop died last week, and I had to buy a new one. I was on the road and had not brought my external drive with Time Machine back-up, so I found myself having to reload from new. I'm having difficulty getting Alfred 5 to work for me. On my Snippets page I get this red ink that reads "Loginwindow seems to be preventing text expansion by locking secure entry."


This doesn't tell me what to do about it. I've tried searching various phrases from this message on this forum and I don't get any hits.


Is this issue due to the fact that I am trying to add a new Mac without removing the old one? How do I remove an old machine off my license?


I would appreciate any help from anywhere.
