Version 2.4.2 from the App store?

So, I bought the App store version, only I have a MacBook Pro Retina that I'm trying to stress-test, and the Mac app store is a couple of revisions behind the current version available on the primatelabs website, which is supposedly the version that actually supports the Retina display.

So, I tried to download and run that version, but it tells me it's in "tryout" mode, and won't let me run the stress tests.

I've already deleted the binary I had downloaded from the App store, so I don't think I have any way to find out what that version number string was, so that I could try plugging that into the newer version that I had downloaded direct.

Is there any other way to solve this problem without having to re-buy the app all over again?

    Hi Brad,

    Thank you for your message. Geekbench 2.4.2 is currently in review for the Mac App Store. While we hope it's released soon, we don't know when it will be released. In the meantime, Geekbench 2.4.0 fully supports the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, so you don't have to run the latest version.

    If you would like to run the latest version, just email your App Store receipt to support at primatelabs dot com and we can set you up with a license key for the website version.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help out.
