Did PASoft create a less-able DEMO version?

Thanks to everyone who have spent so much time contributing to this thread. It's saved me a lot of time. I was actually able to purchase the adaptor and get it up and running without ANY issues on the first attempt.

I've spent a day reading almost this entire thread, but one question that has been asked and answered may no longer be current.

When I visit the PASoft website to download the newest version, only a DEMO version is available for download.

They say the DEMO version is lmited:
Copied from their site...

BMW Scanner V1.4.0 demo version: brief description of possibilities

Short functions list:
Determination of chassis, model, engine, gearbox and complete set
Searching of all units and reading:
- identification data
- odometer value
- VIN and ADFG
- programming info (UIF)
- errors (DTC)
Reading and saving in files:
- program memory
- coding data
- amount of DTCs and DTCs shadow-memory
- live data
- programming info (User Info Fields)
Copying ZCS (IKE - EWS) and FA (IKE - LCM) coding
... and other functions in various units

"Unlocked" functions to show possibilities of full version:
DTCs description in DME MS43.0, EWS3, SRS MRS4
Clearing DTCs in same units
EWS-DME synchronization code in DME MS43.0
Live data in DME MS43.0, EWS3, SRS MRS2 and MRS4
Status of all keys in EWS3
EWS3 coding data interpretation
Equipment correction in SRS MRS4

And early in this thread I read that a newer version addressed some programing bugs and was better than the version that comes on the tiny CD from xCar360.

Does anyone have a link to the newest, unlimited version for PASoft 1.4x?
