    strange download agent - macrium reflect


    when I started the download agent (which I downloaded today from the "free" button from macrium reflect site

    I could choose in the upper dropdown menu only for "free" not for "home".

    and there was no possibility to select "full version" and to fill in the license key.

    Isn't it possible anymore to download the full version via the free download agent or has created macrium now seperated download agents?

    The free version is the full version and includes all the premium features, as can be seen if you try to use any of the paid-for features. It's the licence that locks is as the free version, but you can upgrade that licence to the 30-day trial licence at the click of a button.

    As I understand it, you should also be able to upgrade to a full licence once you've you purchased one.

    Thanks for your answer.

    I ask the questions because I want to be sure I downloaded the right "download agent" so I execute the right "installer": no malicious.

    The images in your messages: are that popups of the execution of the "installer"(=setup) which is downloaded by the agent?

    The images I posted are from a fully installed Macrium Reflect Free, installed by running the downloaded install agent ReflectDLHF.exe (the downloader for the Home Free edition).

    Dear Bree,

    May I ask you a favour?
    Could you check the size of the current download agent ReflectDLHF.exe from the site macrium reflect?
    So I can compare it with the size of mine.

    I have also download ReflectDLHT.exe (trial) and this has exact the same size as DLHF.

    Probably the only difference is the value of a flag.

    Yes, they are both stub installers. Just a minor tweak to install parameter flags.
