Best way to upgrade Filemaker Pro 16 to Advanced 16

Hi Guys,



I recently purchased a version of Filemaker Pro 16.

Couple days later a Filemaker Server 16 legacy license for 1 year.

Together I had the option to license Filemaker Advanced 16 for a fair amount of around 200$ tax included.

But I didn't pick that option because I didn't felt the need for it since I had the regular Pro version already.


Now a week or two later I DO feel the need for FM Advanced 16 because of the script debugging. It would come in great for the problems I'm facing in my scripts.


What's the best way to upgrade to Advanced 16? Because the upgrade version is 400$ extra while the full version is only 200$ more expensive?!

When I try to get a legacy yearly license for FM Advanced 16 I get the following error:

"Your order is below the minimum licenses needed for new customers" or something similar.
