Hi there,

I've downloaded and installed v6.

On the software activation page there was no "server" activation only and upgrade for "watch", which I actived.

Prior to activating the software, I was seeing the Server splash screen, now after running the activation I'm seeing the watch splash screen?

I know server replaced watch, but now I'm a bit confused as to what I should seeing, server or watch?
