Hello [name]! Thanks for joining the GMC. Before making any posts in the Tech Support forum, can we suggest you read the forum rules? These are simple guidelines that we ask you to follow so that you can get the best help possible for your issue.
slightly more specifically, Creator license lasts a year, at which point you would have to either renew it (renewal is not automatic) or purchase a regular (non-time-limited) desktop license at 30% off (IIRC).
