Software Solutionsshapes tool missing

Thanks for the detailed response, Adam. I was able to access the KB article.
It looks like I cannot get a trial version of the professional edition unless I am physically connected to a board.
(for anyone reading, choose option one or two depending on your hardware, and once you’re hooked up to it you can request the 60 day activation.)
I understand the reasoning behind not allowing me the full copy yet. I was just hoping to get a jump on my studies. =]

Can I just inform you that the fourth link where I am given the option to purchase a copy of the professional edition is broken, here:

Thanks for your time and patience.
