I have Foxit PDF Editor activated on my computer and I just paid price to upgrade from Editor to Editor Pro edition from Foxit upgrade portal. However, I downloaded and reinstalled the Foxit application and it still comes up as Editor, not editor pro. How could I get Foxit PDF Editor upgraded to Editor Pro edition on my computer？
When you upgrade your Foxit PDF Editor license from Editor edition to Editor Pro edition, Foxit usually will not issue you a brand new activation code, but will upgrade your original activation code to make it be able to activate the Foxit PDF Editor into Editor Pro edition.

2:Please open Foxit PDF Editor, you’ll see Foxit PDF Editor activation window, click Activate to open the activation dialog box. If you are able to launch Foxit PDF Editor directly without getting the activation window, please click Help menu > Activate, then the activation procedures will start. Copy and paste your registration key to the box under Perpetual License in the pop-up Foxit PDF Editor Activation window, and click Activate.
