I am trying to: update the plugin

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

I expected to see: the plugin updated

Instead, I got: It says I can update it for life, and inside wordpress it says I must first register and put the key before updating it. No sense and loosing so much time with this!

that is correct, you do have a Multilingual CMS for life license.

but you do need to have your WPML registered with a unique key for each site you use WPML on.

please go to Plugins->Add New->Commercial tab.

- is WPML registered ?

To register or renew the key in case your key is not working as expected follow the steps bellow

Please go to there you should be able to see your site registered (unless u never register your site before)

then click on the little trash icon

and follow the steps shown in the video hidden link

let me know your results

Note: if you are updating from a very old version please let me know as a manual upgrade might be required.
