Okay, so I downloaded and installed the update and then it wanted me to register again (WTF). So I tried several times to enter in my code and it wouldn't take it. Now I am stuck using the "free version" and had serious troubles trying to run it last night. Got really frustrated and gave up. Anyone else having this problem? I haven't googled it yet, but I will...
