You need to register and then it gives you 30 days. This is not the same as purchasing and entering your serial, which is a separate excersize.

Thanks Geoff. I don't recall even doing that before but I rarely "test" these upgrades - I just go ahead and purchase them and wait till update #3 or so (to get primary bugs worked out) before using them. However, in this case, I doubt I'll make the move to V8 as I'm already transitioning to something else. This would be the first version since V1 that I've not purchased. I am curious to see how the new mixer works though. But the real question on registering a "trial" version in order to check it out, how does one get a serial # to do this? Contrary to what you said, the trial install REQUIRES a serial # in order to open the program. I think this simply a bug. Hell of way to start off a new version. Oh well . . .

I tried several times to install and the installer hung near the end each time. I closed out of it wih task master. Then I tried to start the thing and it always asks for a serial number - which I don't have 'cause it's the trial version and it didn't come with one.

So, I gave up and unistalled V8 and .net3.0 and visual basic C++.

Yeah, if I don't see some response here from Sony on this today, I'll follow your lead.
