Upgrade from Trial

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

Post » Mon Nov 09, 2015 7:07 am

I purchased the personal license and then redeemed the code with my name and information.
How do I change the Trial edition I am using to one with a personal license.
If I try to use the upgrade block they try to sell me a new license.
I am lost as of now and know there is a way to do this. I just do not know how to do it.
Thank You
Ken

Have you done the following from the manual: Installing a License, specifically:

The license file: c2license.txt

If you've made a purchase directly from Scirra (rather than from Steam), you will be sent a redeem key by email. This is a special code you can enter to the Scirra Store and get your license. If you want to buy a license for someone else, you can give them the redeem key and they can then get a license from the store with their own name and email address on it. This also works if you want to buy licenses for a number of people, e.g. your employees or colleagues: you will receive a number of redeem keys, which you can then give to each individual.

Once you have redeemed your purchase from the Scirra Store, you can download your Construct 2 license, which is a file called c2license.txt. You simply need to copy this folder in to either the install directory or My Documents. Restart Construct 2 and it should launch as the licensed version: the purchaser name should appear on the start page and About dialog, Free edition should disappear from the title bar, and the free edition limits should be removed. Alternatively, you can place your license file wherever you like and locate it by clicking Load license file in the About dialog.


If after following the above, you still encounter problems, then email [email protected].
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Thanks.
It took me several tries as I could not locate the original folder anywhere and then when I did it said to copy it into the same location as the Construct folder but that wouldn't open for me.
Anyway, I finally got it to work. It took me all day.
Tomorrow I am going to try to find the content that I downloaded. I found a folder but it seems to be mostly empty. I am hoping this all makes sense soon as I am getting tired.
I plan to print out the manual and make a book for myself in the morning. I would have done that today but this kept me busy.
I am in the Philippines and it is getting a bit late for me here.
Thank you very much again,
Ken
