December trial requires a license key? (mtiede) - 12/21/2007 7:44 AM PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • By: mtiede


    I had an MSDN version of Expression Blend installed. I uninstalled it and 
    downloaded the December trial.  I installed it and I could see it saying it 
    had copyied some product license and key files.  When I start it, it says it 
    has expired and I need to enter the key. 
    
    What is going on here?
    
    Also there is a hotlink on the dialog that says to get the beta key.  
    Nothing about it when I get there...

    mtiede,

    The Blend 2 December Preview does not require a key. I'll look into this.

    The MSDN version of Blend is v1, and will work side by side with all Blend 2 
    previews. This doesn't solve the license issue you are running into , but 
    you can continue to use the MSDN version.
