I just upgraded today to version 2021.5 due to problems I had with the prior version in Visual Studio 2022. Because my support period had ended for my current license, I am running in 7-day trial mode while I wait for a key from my new license purchase.
While doing this, I discovered a strange and relatively minor issue involving the Trial Mode pop up:
- Open an existing project/solution in a new instance of VS2022 with an unregistered copy of VAX.
- Once VS2022 comes up, immediately press Alt-F7 to open the project properties dialog.
- Once VAX loads, it will automatically pop up the "Trial Mode" dialog prompting me to select "Trial" or enter a key.
- Select Trial to dismiss this dialog.
At this point, the project properties dialog is still open but I can't get the focus back. So I can't edit project properties or even dismiss the dialog completely. I can get focus in my text editor windows and type normally. But since the main VS2022 window is occluded by the properties dialog, that's not very useful.
The only thing I can do at this point is close the entire application, after yes to a dialog that asks me if I really want to terminate the application while a dialog is still open.
If I don't have a dialog open at the time the VAX Trial Mode popup is displayed, I have no problems.
I expect that this problem will go away once I receive and enter my license key, but I figure it was worth reporting in case you wanted to investigate.

I know the feeling of forgetting seconds later, muscle memory can be a powerful force

Thank you, that took a couple of attempts to trigger, the timing is quite tight.
I'm glad that you were able to reproduce. I got my new license key last night, so the issue is now resolved for me.
The issue triggered for me twice in a row yesterday. I figured out the workaround after my first repro, but forgot seconds later and did the same thing again. :-)

Thank you, that took a couple of attempts to trigger, the timing is quite tight. For now just don't rush to instantly open the dialog, you should only have to wait a couple of moments for the Trial dialog to appear, until you get your new license.
Good to know though, I have put in a bug report for this:
