Platinum up grade

Minor/ major goof here. I purchased the Platinum and was using the demo to see if I like. Well when I down loaded the full version, I was in a hurry and did not un- install the demo... yep. The full version thinks it's still the demo and will not let me burn any DVD. Best route to take besides a bar.... un-install and then redown load if they let me or drop Vegas an e mail?

Try uninstalling and reinstalling. I can't see that there is any reason to download again.

I *think* the trial version and the purchased version are the same thing -- you just need to enter your activation codes to "unlock" the trial version and make it fully functional. See if you can find a way to do this -- try the "About" menu.

I'm pretty sure when I bought Platinum late last summer, that I downloaded the trial while I waited for my "boxed" edition to arrive. When I did receive the boxed manuals, I just used the codes printed in the first pages of the manuals to unlock the trial version -- I never installed VMS from the CD. I did have to install DVD Architect studio from the CD, because I hadn't downloaded a trial for it.

Thanks Chienworks and Tim for fast response. Took Chien advise and re- entered the code in menu. That did the trick. Thanks again.
