You should click the option to buy if you want to keep the version you have.
Am I correct that with the trial of PrE 8, all one needs to do is purchase the product and then just add that S/N to the trial? I know that with PrPro, one must first uninstall PrPro, then run Adobe Clean Script CS4 several times, before installing the full-paid version. I do not think that is required from the trial of PrE 8, but wanted verification for an expert.
I always uninstall the trial and then install the purchased copy too, Hunt. Although I don't know if it's necessary.
thanks everybody! but the problem was about the "buy" button - because I wanted to buy & could not get through & keep the version!
I've just called the support & at the end I had to buy (I wanted to BUY the full version & this was really making me angry, that you want to buy and to get something & they are sending you in a circle, where you cannot really find your goal!!) the normal download, but don`t download everything again & just get the serial nr... but my main problem was - why I did not want to deinstall my trial version, that I wanted to use my edited material, which was blocked with the letters of the trial version & I hopped, that these letters would disappear, when I am activating the full version... but that was not really the case...
have a good time & thanks again! julia ps: & also thanks for trying to understand my english! :-)
Now, there is no real concern about loosing your edited Projects. Uninstalling the program, and then reinstalling the full-paid version should not affect your .PREL files (your Project files). Personally, I am a cautious individual, so I always will make a backup of any Projects (just to be safe). I also do a manual System Restore Point, though many uninstall/reinstall schemes make them too. I told you that I was safety conscious.
Your media Assets will definitely NOT be touched, so they will still be available, when you Open one of those earlier Project files. Just do not Move, Rename, or Delete your Assets.
PS - your English was fine with me. Now, I am from Mississippi, so English is a "second language" to me...
