CaseWare Working Papers | What do I do when my CaseWare Working Papers (NRV) has reset to a demo version?

Published:  31/03/2017
When I open CaseWare Working Papers (NRV), I receive a "CaseWare Demo Version" message alert stating there are a few days remaining until the software expires, there is no option to click on Continue and I am locked out of CaseWare Working Papers, how do I resolve this?

If you have not updated to the latest version of CaseWare Working Papers you will receive an expiry notification.
This notification will occur if you are a Non-registration client on version 2016.00.065 or lower.
