That never works for me either and I'm in the same time zone. I have found the staff very helpful on the phone and with email follow-up.

So the answer is 'no' to a 64 bit upgrade? No mention of it in the release pitch. If that's the case I'm afraid this is a deal breaker for me given the trajectory of the Mac operating system. I'll cross my fingers for the 2019 release.

Hi Andrea,

It sounds like you added an "Upgrade from 2017" option to your cart. BUPR is the Pro upgrade from 2017, and BUPS is the Pro upgrade from 2016 or earlier. You can remove the BUPR from your account and only order the BUPS.

Thanks
Kent

One thing I will say after just getting it today and trying it out, I wish the app icon looked different than the 2017. I am confused on which one I'm using.

If you right click the Band-in-a-Box.app > Show Package Contents > BBAppIcon.icns Open with Preview > Edit > Colors (edit all sizes and save)

Or right click Band-in-a-Box.app > Get Info, now drag the icon below (or any other icon of your choice) onto the icon in the Get Info window.

Preview (it just has a tint added so different to 2017):
