Hi Erich,

Yes!  I had downloaded but not yet installed (don't know why) 12.8c on 
my desktop PC back in January this year.
When I went to do the upgrade yesterday, I first was going to copy the 
zip file from the laptop but when I saw the same version already in the 
downloads on my desktop PC I just unzipped and ran that one.
So I redid things now with the June download of the zip file and 
everyone is happy!

Thanks for your time and help.
