Old software is ABC Amber Blackberry Converter version 8.07 while new software is Elcomsoft Blackberry Backup Explorer version 9.6., $49 for standard and about $95 for professional.
I went to Password recovery, forensic, forensics, system and security software from ElcomSoft : recover or reset lost or forgotten password, remove protection, unlock system
and sent an e-mail explaining my situation. I said that while I had the old software, ABC switching to Elcomsoft never gave me an oportunity to upgrade. I told them that I lost my old registration code, but I provided my email address and old order number.
They sent me the professional edition for free!!! and said that free upgrades are available until September 8, 2012. They provided me a new registration code and order number.
