Free Trial Version of Storyline 2
Here is my dilemma: Months ago, I downloaded a free trial version of Storyline 2 to my computer at work. The company I work for is not on board with e-learning, so I just worked with it when I had a few spare minutes, between routine duties. I used it to begin a project for a job aid that I felt was very needed in our company, and I got about half finished with it before the free trial version expired. I sent an email to Articulate and explained my problem. I was sent an activation code that would give me an additional two weeks on the free trial version before I had to buy it or give up on my idea. I was advised not to enter the activation code until I knew I would have time to work on my project, as I could not get any more time without buying the software outright.
As it turned out, I did not have an opportunity to get back to my project until just about a month ago. By that time, the issue with the new version of the Flash player had arisen, and amended versions of Storyline 2, Replay, Quizmaker and Engage had come out. I don't remember the exact sequence of events, but when I went in to enter my activation code, I ended up trying to download the amended versions of the programs first, and discovered that I had been given a whole new 30-day free trial!
Over the last month, I have had more free time at work than usual and have spent a lot of time working with Articulate, just trying to learn some of its more sophisticated capabilities. I finished the initial part of the project that I had started originally. Then I began to expand on it.
My dilemma now is that I haven't finished my "expansion," and my free trial version will expire tomorrow or the day after. So my question is, since I never used my original two-week "extension," will that activation code still work? If not, can I get another activation code to extend my 30-day free trial?
Failing that, I would like to be able to work on my project at home. Problem is, I have Storyline 1 on my computer at home, but the software I did my work project in is Storyline 2. Is it possible for me to download a free trial version of Storyline 2 on my computer at home? Will that mess up Storyline 1? I don't want Storyline 2 to expire on my home computer and then not be able to use the Storyline 1 that I paid for.
Thanks for your help,
