Hi,
It seems that ever since I've had LW9.6, I've needed to get a new license key every 90 days. Did I miss a memo or email telling me how to turn my 9.6 install from 'Open Beta phase 7' (as it's called on the products page of my account), to a permenant key?

I haven't asked before because it's only been a small annoyance, but it's starting to mount up ;)

p.s. I'm on 32bit windows if that makes any difference.

Do you mean 9.6.1? That's still in beta so there are no permanent keys yet.

Good question. I'm just running the latest version that is available to download in the 'my downloads' section of my account.

In modeler, it's telling me it's

build 1539 (Win32) 14-Jan-2009

There's no mention of a '.1' after 9.6.

At any rate, bit weird there is a 9.6 version in beta when v10 is about to be released?

I've just downloaded the latest 9.6 available to me. This one is a lot newer. I must have missed the announcement that new versions would be made available.

Just didn't realise 9.6[.1] was still in beta.

9.6.1 would be a point update for people who still want to use LW9. Not everyone is upgrading to 10.

oooh perfect timing - I've just gone to re-install 9.6 and seen a new "sign up for Beta" link.

Think I'll hold off until 9.6.1 is out of beta

Having also pre ordered 10 it's going to be a close call
