However, only one installation can be used at a time, at no time should both be in use simultaneously. In addition, if the software has been installed more than five times, it will prompt you with a warning, letting you purchase a new license to continue using the software.

There are usually two different ways when it comes to upgrading:

Upgrading via Software

Upgrading on Windows: To look for available updates, click on the software's menu in the top right corner. From here you will be able to click on “Check for updates”, then it will look for any updates that are available and prompt you to do an automatic upgrade.

Updating on Mac's: When it comes to upgrading with the Mac version, first open the software and then navigate to “Preferences” in the top left corner. From here click “Check for updates” in the list, and proceed as prompted.

Download and Reinstall

This method requires you to download the updated software from the official website and then reinstall. Once you've updated your software to the latest version, if you are not prompted to enter a new registration code then it's registered already and you're good to go. However, if you are prompted to enter a new code, simply contact us and we will get you updated.

In the situation that the code is coming back as invalid, try the following:

1. Double check that your product is the same one that was purchased by first uninstalling it, and the downloading and reinstalling. To do this, use the link from the registration e-mail that was sent upon purchasing.

2. If that doesn't work, make sure your spelling everything correctly as the e-mail and code are case sensitive. To be sure it's correct, it's suggested that you copy and paste them into the boxes.

If neither of these methods fixed the situation, just contact us. By providing us a screenshot of what you're seeing in the registration window it can help us provide a faster solution. The screenshot should show the registration and e-mail fields.

If you made your order and have not received a code, check to ensure the payment was successful. Usually once the order goes through successfully, the confirmation e-mail will be delivered shortly after that. If your payment went through, give it a few minutes.

If you are trying to purchase a product which we are reselling, we won't have the order information within our database due to privacy concerns. However, you may contact us with any issues you may have and we can contact the correct people to get it corrected. Please include the following information: Name or e-mail address registered on the order, Order ID, Site name you placed the order with, Date, and order amount, Name of ordered products.
