Update to 2022 only opens as trial and I can't find my latest registration code because I now have a demo version installed

Yesterday I followed your link for a discounted upgrade to moneydance 2022 and paid £22.25 to an outfit called paddle.com. I could see no instructions on the screen as to what to do next to install the upgrade so I sat back and waited an email confirming my payment and instructing how to upgrade this discounted version.

I have seen no email at all, so today I clicked on upgrade and it downloaded and installed the 2022 version - but it was the demo version, and as I no longer have the old previously installed version I don’t have access to my registration code.

So I am now stuck with an unusable copy of moneydance.

Please advise how I can get out of this and carry on using this program at either 2020 or 2021 or even 2022 level.
Thank you

    Your 'lost key' system has just sent me 2 old keys, from 2012 and 2014. I am certain that I have upgraded since 2014, but when I entered the 2014 key, it was rejected as incorrect.
    Please help further

    Install Toolbox extension, click General Menu, then View MD Config file..
    Hit CTRL-F (or CMD-F) and search for 'gen.lic' (same key strokes to repeat). You should see your installed keys..

    The download the version that matches your key:

    Hi Paul,

    I can see your purchase from the 25th in the system and have had Paddle re-send the email with your new license key. Can you make sure you check your spam folder in case the license key email ended up there?

    We appreciate your support!
