The information regarding Windows no longer seems to be correct. Just downloaded the latest version of the Audible app. Custom location is not an available option, nor is there an option to open the download location.

I purchased the convertor last year. Works fantastically! BUT when I went to open it today...it refused to acknowledge that I *had a paid license* ...so it's stuck me back into the free trial. I really don't want to be forced to double pay for a product I already bought and really like so hopefully support gets back to me really soon!
