Hello Gregg,
The 'Updates' page
accepts any license key issued by RenderX, no matter which product or
which type of license you have in your license key, and the license key
is always "license.xml", but you may rename it as you wish (but not edit).

Trial license key for XEP says (in it's file):

       <feature name="stamp"/>
, while Desktop or Server licenses say:
   <product name="XEP">
     <limit name="server">1</limit> <!-- or -->
     <limit name="client">1</limit>
, so you may always find out what a file is for by reading it.

I don't think there is any ambiguity in this procedure.

there, you are redirected to the same page with links for downloads as I
described above.

Sorry for long post. I think it may help others who meet troubles
getting rid of the stamp.
