Confused about Carrara Pro 8 to 8.5 upgrade
I've been using Carrara on and off for the past few years, installing and uninstalling it since version 2, but I haven't been a serious user lately. But now the 8.5 version looks really good, especially now that it works with Daz Studio and Genesis.
So I already own Carrara Pro 126.96.36.199 - WIn 64 bit, with a serial number. Then I installed 188.8.131.52 - WIn 64 bit (I assumed it was a free upgrade) but the serial number for 8.1 won't work with 8.5. Is this because 8.5 is a paid upgrade? I didn't see any options to pay for this upgrade, which is why I assumed it was free for all version 8 users?
It's not the most recent (beta) version, but it is listed in my available downloads.
So what am I missing? I only have a serial number for version 8?
Thanks for any assistance!
