now it sounds like you can enter the serial number but it is not being accepted?
Please provide a Skype username or a US phone number and a good time to contact you when you will be in front of your computer and we will have an engineer contact you to resolve this issue over the phone.
We are available Monday - Friday from 9am - 4pm EST (except major U.S. holidays).
That is correct. Before I followed your suggestions, the problem was as I described it. After following your instructions, I can type in the serial #, but it is not being accepted as valid. I also tried copying and pasting the numbers. Same negative result.
