You do not have to download again, just adding the registration key will
change Essentials to the full version.
Taking away the registration XML file will change the full version to
the Essentials version.
I don't know how the XML file which holds your registration code would
get wiped out.
On my Vista machine, it is located in C:\ProgramData\RootsMagic\version
I don't know about the color coding It works in Essentials just as it
does in the full version.
I would suspect that you may have opened a perevious version of your
database or restored an earlier backup file.
Check the RootsMagic Window menu to see if you have more than one
Check the File - Open Recent, to see if you may have another file that
you have been working on.
