Upgrade Availability:   Just check the Version Number on the basic Product on this page and compare it to the Release Number displayed on your application’s Main Toolbar (first window that opens).  As long as the first two numbers are the same, you can download any later release and install it without needing a new Product Key.  For example, if your version says “Release 7.01.7789” and the new release is “7.01.7855”, you can download and install it (please uninstall the previous version first).  You will not be prompted for a product key, and all of your settings and data will be the same.
