Entering purchased serial number did not convert Lightroom 4 beta to full version Lightroom 4.
The name BETA is still in place, and the program refuses commands by "not possible in beta version"

What should I do ?

I don't think the beta can be licensed. Your best bet is to download the full version from your Adobe purchases page and license that.

Thanks,
didn't realize that Beta was not the trial version that was mentioned in the e-mail with the serial number.

Upgrading from LR3, but LR 4 beta on my machine.

Beta is for finding bugs before the software is released for sale.

Trial is for using the released software for 30 days to see if you like it before buying it.

Bugs are fixed and enhancements made between the Beta version and the Release version.
