I am receiving a License key is expired or used for an older version error after I updated my Ultimate Studio by downloading the update using the blue Ultimate Studio for .NET link shown on my Downloads page right above my license key.  I attempted to update to fix issues with sFTP I was experiencing.  My purchase was on 11/3/2016.

I still set my license key ComponentPro.Licensing.Common.LicenseManager.SetLicenseKey(...) without any exception.  I have double checked that the license key I'm applying is the one currently shown on my Account page.  But now when this line runs:  "manager As New ComponentPro.Excel.WorkbookManager" it throws the exception "Your license key for ComponentPro.Excel is expired or used for an older version. Please contact ComponentPro Sales Team at If you already have a license, please log in to our portal at to apply the license key shown on the account dashboard page."

The file I recently downloaded is named UltimateStudio-Pro_Standard_7.2.234.54.exe.  I noticed that when I originally downloaded v6.4 in 2016 and that down file was named UltimateStudio_Standard_v6.4.60924.exe.  And, in Aug 2018, I successfully updated to v6.8, the file downloaded was UltimateStudio_Standard_v6.8.4155.exe.

The newest download is named "-Pro_Standard" which is different that the past downloads which did not include "-Pro".  Could that be it, or is it a difference between v6 and v7?

Right now my application is broken as a result of this issue.   Thank you for your help.
