Is There a way to download a trial of VP 18 a second time?

I downloaded VP 18 when it first arrived and tested it. It had render problems and rendered slower than my VP17, so I did not switch. I understand that they have fixed some GPU stuff so i was going to try again but when i re-downloaded it today it says trial expired. Is there a way to test again?

Thank You

Yes, you can use a trial of VP19 when it is released, maybe later this year.

Thank you for the reply's, I guess I will wait for V19, I have hung with with Vegas since V5 upgraded each time until V18 😬. I have branched out to Davinchi R Studio PC & Mac and GrassValley Edius like them both for different reasons. Edius is by far the most stable editing program I have ever used. I have 2 macs so i use Davinchi on them, Do not like FCPX. But by far I like the functionality of Vegas!!! but the rendering instability and time was my hold up on 18. Still a fan though!!!
