I have downloaded a trial version of Aurora 2019.
Having said that, the computer I use for the express purpose of holding/editing images (and various editing related programs) is not usually connected to the net. However, for the purpose of obtaining programs, I have the availability of a net connection, but once a program has been downloaded, the connection is severed. As occurred in this case.
When I tried to open and use Aurora, I was informed that I needed an internet connection to activate the program. Thinking this was a one time activation, I connected and was able to open and use the program. Of course, I then disconnected.
Now, it seems that every time I wish to open and use the program, I get the same message and cannot use the trial version unless internet-connected.
I have read a couple threads about activation and the net and one has a response from Skylum indicating this problem had been resolved. However, it did not address whether it was for the paid-for version or the trial.
Can someone confirm the trial requires (or not) a net connection to use and if so, is there a way to circumvent this requirement. As this computer has been the subject of unlawful activity through the net, I can't keep it connected as a routine.
