"EDIT: re-installation fixed it, sorry." - THIS, why isn't THIS stated anywhere?? Like in the confirmation email you get, or when you generate a donation.key??? But thank you, Tobi_Peter, for providing the answer. Reinstalling over top of the existing app worked for me as well, to remove the watermark, and so hopefully that pop about having the free edition.
