Download latest version questions about reaper
Hello and new to using Reaper and recent purchued my own licenses. I am using version 5.971/64. It continues to prompt me to upgrade to 5.975 when I open the program..i proceed to download page and when I do, it take me to the website and when I click to download it prompts me to start a new free trial?? How do I get updates for reaper and keep my current license #...New to this site also. And Pro Audio also..Thank you for any help you can offer..
Have a good night..

Download and install. If you have a current license on that computer it will get picked up automatically.

yep, the license is actually a small file in your reaper folder, so as long as you do not delete that, any updates will automatically authorize (until your license no longer covers the version #, which should be fine until 6.X something)

this way, you can also transfer your license by simply copying the file to a new computer.

(of course thereĀ“s also some other form of license retrieval, which I cannot remember right now though)
