    Locked out of Media Composer, expired subscription.

    Currently I'm unable to open my copy of Media Composer.  Had an annual subscription that expired in Feb of 2017.  The deal was that I could continue to use that version of MC forever, and I did in fact keep using it for a while afterwards.  However, tried to fire it up the other day and got the whole activation dialogue.  App manager hung up/wouldn't initialize or connect to my account so I uninstalled and reinstalled.  Now it connects, but that hasn't helped.  It still has all my details (system id and activation id, symphony option, etc) in the licensing tab, but when I try to activate it tells me my subscription must be renewed.

    That wasn't the deal! I never upgraded MC after my subscription expired, so I should be able to access MC, right?  How can I use this software I paid for?

    I gotta say, this system is a real hassle!
