Description PJ 2012-08-14 16:34:57 UTC
Have MFA eval installed


1) Download the full installer from the store.
2) Run the installer

Expected behavior:
User should be prompted for activation and after successful activation the user should have a full version of MFA

Actual behavior: 
The user is never prompted for activation and the eval version remains.



MFA 4.2.5
Windows 7 64-bit
Live installer

Windows installer comes only in one flavor - there's no eval/full version for it. Activation is up to the IDE.
Comment 2 PJ 2012-08-15 09:45:01 UTC
Sorry - yeah. That's what the enhancement is all about. I was thinking there should be some installer that does prompt for activation and all of that at some point. (Hence not a bug)
