I've built a web site using the Free Trial of Sitefinity 4.2 and now I'd like to switch it over to an active web site with a Community Edition license. How can I download a license. Do I need to request one? The community edition banner is showing on the web site but I also randomly get the Sitefinity 4.2 Trial message.

Thanks for contacting us!
Our Community edition does not require license. You can activate it from your Project Manager by going to "Create New Project" then upload your credentials ( Email and Password) and choose "Community edition".
Please, bear in mind that some of the features that are available in the Standard edition are not included in the Community edition and once you migrate your project they will not be available. Further if you have used them in your project ( for example if you have built a Form using the Form builder) using the Standard edition trial this content will not be migrated to the Community edition.
I hope this information is helpful and please, let me know if you have any further questions!

I am trying to activate a Community Edition but it is not possible to select the email credentials, only the license. What gives? It's a fresh install.
Edit: Ok, I have tried a Standard Edition that expired, it could then be set as a Community Edition. Still a bit puzzling that it doesn't say so anywhere that I could find, and in the answer above.
Edit 2... Ok now that I tried it, I could select the mail input. :)
