gotta pay to upgrade from 5.2 to 5.6? OUCH! and I can't go back (4 posts)

    I have (had) 5.2. A utility program suggested there was a new version available and I should upgrade. Fine. I uploaded 5.6 from your site and the .dmg overwrote the old version. So far so good, but when I tried to run it I was told my serial number was no longer valid and I would have to buy a new one. I had no intention of spending more money - 5.2 was fine for me, so I used TimeMachine to restore 5.2, but it won't boot. What do I have to do restore my 5.2? Do I have to restore some pref's or library files as well? I will give you my name and old password if necessary.

    PS: now I see your pricing page, but I wasn't shown that before, the thing just started downloading. What do I need to do to restore 5.2?

    Sorry for the surprise! You can download Fetch 5.3.1, the newest version that will work with your serial number, from . You should toss your copy of 5.6 and install 5.3.1; then you should be all set.

    OK. That works. Now I'll think about the upgrade. Thanks.
