Updating from tryout to the full licensed version

If you first installed the tryout version of the component and purchased a license, you'll have to upgrade to the full, unencoded version.

To do so, you have 2 options.

  • Uninstall the tryout and install the full version
  1. When you purchased a license, you received a code and a download link. You can use the download link to get the full version of the component. Just go to Component and download the version that you wish to install (com_formex.x.x.zip for Joomla 1.0.x or com_formex.x.xJ15.zip for Joomla 1.5.x). You can also get the component by going to your tryout installation, pasting the code in the code box, and then clicking on Support > Files. Note that you won't be able to access the support area without a valid code.
  2. After you downloaded the full version of the component, you can backup the forms you created with the tryout (if any) by clicking on Backup your forms
  3. Once you backed-up the forms, uninstall the tryout version
  4. Install the full version of the component
  5. Add the code in the code box
  6. Click on Restore and point to the backup file
  • Update from tryout to full version(doesn't work on all servers)
  1. Paste the code you received in the Your Code box.
  2. Attention! this procedure doesn't work on servers that do not have the Allow remote inclusion php option set to true. So if you see the message:
    Error, invalid code or remote file _update_rsform.xml not available
    you won't be able to use this procedure.
  3. Click on the Accept terms checkbox
  4. Click on Update
  5. The tryout will be replaced with the Full version automatically.
