Same problem here: 1. Uninstalled beta test copy first. 2. Restarted Windows. 3. Installed FM8 trial version. 4. Started FM8 and I get to see the splash screen saying "You have 30 days left in your trial period". Great! This gives me plenty of time to prepare a "what's new in FrameMaker 8" seminar for my FrameMaker trainees. 5. Selected "Continue Trial" and clicked Next, but got the message "Product License has expired". Sigh!
Indeed Sarah, you were right in saying: "Caution for beta testers: Reports <http://lists.frameusers.com/pipermail/framers/2007-August/008766.html> on the frameusers list indicate difficulties with installing the trial version on a system that had a beta version installed." So far for my "first impressions".
