Activating Upgrades and Plug-ins

The program is distributed as one installation package which is common for all editions. During the trial period, you can use all of the features without any limitations. After registration, the features you can use are defined by your registration number. See Features of Different Editions for more details.

After registration, features that are not available in your edition will stop working. For example, if you registered the program with a number for Home Standard edition, all tasks that use plug-ins of the Professional and Small Server editions will end with an Error status. Attempts to use the respective options in New Task Wizard will fail.
