  • $120 doesn't pass the smell test. You have likely been a victim of software counterfeiting. 

    Please read the stickies at the top of this forum.

    Also please don't try to resell this product unless you can verify that is genuine. 

    note: the counterfeiters have gotten so good it is very hard to tell on an unopened package(which I'm assuming is the case here) One of the tipoff's is if the COA says made in the USA then it is counterfeit.

  • thanks Colin, I was hoping you would chime in.

    Guess I need to learn how to post a link. (Hard to teach this old dog new tricks)

    I see from his edit he has determined his product was fake.

  • Yeah, looks like he knows.  But it isn't installed so we can't help.  Darin could but he'll have to tell him how to submit the key without printing it all in a forum.
