Thanks for your efforts. This will help. BTW, why does the local subscription cache not last 12 months from date of payment for annual subscription?

#2   — Edited

No prob:) If the local cache lasted as long as the subscription, then anyone would be able to remove the PC from the subscription list in the portal and add another, and another, and another, and another. Unfortunately the world isn't an honest place and people would take advantage of the liberty of a subscription system that doesn't check itself. That would make us sad because we work 14-16 hours per day on making this software for you all to enjoy :)

Is this another update download as I just updated 2 hours ago?

I will download again,just in case.
