Did not revert to freeware

Not so says I....I was out of town for a week and during that time the trial period ended. When I tried to open Wave Pad today, it says I MUST purchase to continue to use and takes me to webpage to order. If I close that page, it will close out the program.

Each attempt to open it, ends in same results!!

Re: Did not revert to freeware

Thats because you must have downloaded the Masters version, you need to download the Free version to continue using it without paying.

WavePad Free Version

The basic version of WavePad allows you to trial the Plus features of the Master's Edition for 14 days. Before the 14 days expires you may get a pop up letting you know that the trial period of these features is about to expire and are you interested in upgrading. Once the trial period is over the application simply reverts to the freeware mode.

About wavePad free

WavePad is free, but i was surprised to read "you have 3 days left on using WavePad. Will you explain to me, please.

Free ?

There is a free version and a masters version which you have to pay for.

Re: about wavePad free
