We are running SkyX Pro (on Windows 10) and I was attempting to update from the dropdown menu. I get an "access denied" error - register account. When I enter serial number it indicates that I am already registered. Looking at your site, I found the following as a possible issue:
Is it possible I have created multiple accounts? When we initially installed and registered (last year I think) SkyX was under one name but I set up this account (to log into your site and look at Forum, etc.) under my name. In addition, the motherboard on our PC fried recently - we had to replace it and then reinstall everything.
Thanks for your help,

Actually, the message makes no reference to who has registered the serial number.

Yes, this is quite possible (and more common than we'd prefer). I tried to locate any other member accounts that might be yours, but I don't have sufficient information. The one other Jason Smith account I found was created and used one day only, back in 2012; this doesn't seem to fit your criterion.
If you include your serial number in reply to this (which we can remove before approving the forum post), we can then determine to which account it is registered.

The serial number you supplied is registered to the mhaeri account. You seem to have already known that; perhaps what you don't realize is that you must be signed into this member account (or another with an unexpired subscription) on our web site in order to get download access to the latest installers. In the scenario you originally described, I would assume you were instead signed into your Jason Smith account.
Also, TheSkyX's Check for Updates tool can be used to open the page on our web site from which an update can be downloaded, but the download still requires that the browser be signed into an account with an unexpired subscription. TheSkyX doesn't automatically cause the browser to sign into the account associated with its serial number.
