This is version 9.2.4, not v10 like the description says. After installing it, they will offer you v10 as an update, but you will not get it free. It's only a trial. So, if you just want the free version, don't try to update it.
I had been using version 9 and ran into a problem. I wrote to Ashampoo and they advised me to upgrade to version 10. I wrote back and asked whether version 10 was free or not (I had received version 9 for free). They told me version 10 was free, so I upgraded, and the upgrade solved my problem. To my surprise, I've been very happy with it. I had always assumed that the company's incessant promotional email messages were a sign of shoddy goods, but at least for me, Ashampoo Burning Studio 10 has been a pleasure to use. However, I continue to get "special offers" from them to upgrade to version 10 Advanced for a price ($29.95, I think). I see no reason to do so, given my limited needs. All I'm trying to say is that there is
a version 10 (not version 10 Advanced) that apparently the company is at times willing to supply for free, and in my experience it works well. However, be prepared for lots of promotional emails to follow.
