Take note of your Promo Code in the e-mail message

The e-mail

A few minutes after you click the Close button, you'll receive two email messages. The first one serves as your registration confirmation and includes your registration number (This is the same number as the Reference ID number you saw on the validation page.) The second email message contains your Promo Code and a link to the Upgrade Assistant page. Make note of the Promo Code as you'll need it later on. To continue, click the Download Upgrade Assistant button.
