Upgrading from Trial to Full version

If you are getting this md5 error while upgrading from trial version to full version, make sure that you have first uninstalled the trial version and rebooted your computer before attempting the upgrade.

If the issue persits, it is possible your antivirus and/or firewall software is preventing proper verification of the files. You'll need to temporarily disable the antivirus and firewall real-time shields. If you are currently connected to a vpn, disconnect from the vpn and use your regular network and internet connection.
