For older versions

Inline with Intuit's discontinuation plan for older products, discontinued products cannot be registered for the first time. You may re-register discontinued products if they have been registered before and are being reinstalled. You can contact us to get the validation code (USUK, or Canada), but note that assisted support for discontinued products is no longer available.
