I just uninstalled Addin Express from my computer and tried to update to version 8.6 and it says my license key is not compatible with this version of the software.

I have a current subscription for the Addin Express for Office and .NET Professional. Why won't it recognize the license key?

Okay, after some digging around I found that when Visual Studio asks you if you want to upgrade to the latest version and you click yes it automatically downloads the Standard version. This doesn't work if you are on the Professional or Premium versions of the software.

I just went to the downloads page on this website and selected the correct version.

Hello Lance,

We can't reproduce this issue.

It doesn't download. Instead, it opens a page that allows you to download an appropriate edition. It looks like you clicked the Standard edition.
