Thanks, Peter. But of course I did check my Account online before posting here. The prior year’s key shows up, but of course shows expired. The invoice for the year (which started in early April, per the timing of my original subscription purchase) is present, but has no Key.
As for email, I did get the email in April that also had the invoice and showed the annual charge against my payment method, but had in that very email the already-just-expired date on the Key, and no updated expiration date or renewed Key…
However: Just now, after so long failing to get any response via online ticket, email or phone, I did have a Chat window pop up on BorisFX website, and I asked again there. A nice person looked into it, and said that the whole system simply fouled up. He fixed it for the Activation, and offered a Tech Support contact for the fact that the OFX Host still shows the BorisFX plug-ins with red X through them.
Some progress. And hope that people do exist there. Thanks.
