I had this issue before on my old computer. I was trying Padshop Pro trial for a while and decided to go with the normal Padshop first to see if it would be enough for my purposes. Sample import is nice, but there are tons of samples to play with already in the little one.
I bought Padshop. Uninstalled everything from the previous trial. Installed Padshop. Activated via Soft-eLicenser. Opened in my DAW and I still get to see Padshop Pro. (Hence the trial was still running I suppose.)
Same scenario is happening now with a new computer I got since 2 days. Got me a new activation key. Used the installer I had downloaded from Steinberg after my Padshop purchase again. Activated my license. Again, Padshop Pro, but no way to get access to the normal Padshop.
There must be a way to get access to the version I bought, no? Or do I really have to wait 30 days for the trial license to expire to finally use the product I purchased?
Any help appreciated.
