You do not download a file and rename it, so sounds like you may have been pointed to a pirate licence. If it is a legal licence it will be sent to you in an email and you just place it in the Mach3 folder and restart Mach if it is already running.

3.Once installed, copy the attached license file to the Mach3 folder (default C:Mach3)
 

Mach1Lic.*********  MUST BE  renamed to  Mach1Lic.dat



4.Restart your computer.


5.Run Mach3, and the registration details will be imported automatically from the license file.
 



I got that in an email, with an attachment. does it still seem like a pirated copy? ........

No that sounds like it is legitimate, no mention of downloading and renaming a file :)

You dont have to restart the computer, just shutting down Mach and restarting is all that is required.
If you have done as the info above says and you still do not get Mach out of Demo you may have placed the file in the wrong folder.
