License expired, can no longer edit projects even though "Your activation code is a perpetual license!"

My Premium edition license expired. I logged in to continue work under the assumption as stated on the Buy page:

"Your activation code is a perpetual license!
Each one-time purchase of a license includes 6, 12, or 24 months of updates. You will be able to maintain existing projects and create new projects with the same level of features available at the time of activation code expiration."

I am getting the following prompt and cannot open any projects:

"You are using Unlimited Edition Free Trial of Code On Time.
This product will not work with the projects created with commercial or free version of app generator."

How do I get back the Premium edition I've already licensed? Please advise.

Thank you,
