A few days ago I downloaded a trial version of EM2, because my EM1 was crashing all the time, due to a conflict with a new videocard I had to install.
I was reluctant to donwload EM2 ... But since my whole DAM is organised via EM, I tried to download EM2 anyway  ... And now everything is working fine again. I was happy for a little while.
But now I can't find a product key to activate EM2 ....
If I click on the 'buy EM2 now' button on the EM website ( I end up on a webpage with a product list of the Expression packages of  Microsoft ... But EM2 is nowhere to be found?
I followed the discussions about EM on both this forum and on the Microsoft forum ... and I know that downloading EM2 was maybe not too smart of me ...
But I use this software now for several years (back to the Iview years) and I'm very happy with it ... and moreover ... I don't have the time on this moment to invest the time in another software and to tranfer al my pictures in a new database.

So ... HELP! ... is there anyone who knows where I can buy a serial number (not the package with the DVD, but just a License Key )...
I have 23 days left before my trial version expires ... and then I will be a desperate man.

Hi Erik,

Believe the only way you can get a EM2 license is to purchase an upgrade for $99 from Amazon at this link Expression Media 2 Upgrade.

MS has stopped selling EM from their web site. So you can no longer just get a key via email.

I hope that this helps.



MacOS 10.5 Intel, Photoshop CS5, EM2.0.2 , IIP 3.2, LR3

Which is fine if you are in the USA.

If you're in other countries (in my case Australia) you'll have a much harder (impossible?) job.  Amazon won't ship software to Australia and no local suppliers are stocking it.

Indeed if you life in Europe, then there seems to be no way to get an activation code?
Hard to understand, that you still can download a trial version, but that they don't sell any license keys anymore ??

Is there nobody who wants to sell his/her license key ... or is that illegal?
