Thanks for your response. I hoped my explanation wouldn't be too
convoluted, but I may not have been clear enough.
I did purchase the upgrade as mentioned, online. I recieved a notice
indicating the purchase was complete, too. So, should I be concerned that
the programs still show as "(Trial)"? Do I need to reload them, somehow?
Or, is this due to the trial period still having sway over my purchase
transaction? I know that sounds ludicrous - it just shows that I'm a novice.
