I have just paid for a MillWizard license and received these instructions:

     To properly load PC ID licensed products:

     Save it to some location on the PC that you registered (the Desktop is a good choice)
     Open the Mill Wizard or Mach4(if using Win 7 or Win 8, right-click on the shortcut icon and choose "Run As Administrator" from the menu)
     Click on Help > About in the menu bar
     Click the "Load License File" button on the About screen
     Browse to the license file and Open it
     Close and re-open the About screen to check that the license is properly loaded - it should say "Licensed Copy" above the box with the PC ID.[/li][/list]

After following these steps, I still have an unlicensed Demo version with a PC ID different from the PC ID I supplied.

My PC ID is my Full Computer Name. Right?

Please help!

No, the PCID is a computed value that will appear in the PCID box on the About screen. It will be a string of characters that look random. That is the string you should copy and supply to the machsupport license screen to generate the matching key.
