Zend Studio 8.0 debug does not step through code after Evaluation Period Over

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
My evaluation period was over the other day. I picked up my development this morning and when I would step through, the Variables window would show the values and then when the page loaded, the variables would disappear.

I thought this might be that after the evaluation period, this feature was no longer available so I forked over the $300. I then restarted and now Zend Studio doesn't even step through the code.

That first page, customer.php is a launch page that only has the following:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<?php session_start(); ?>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
<body>To start click <a href="user/login.php?org=XXXXMS1">here</a>. 

Open in new window

So after doing Alt-Shift-D then W like before (or doing it through the drop-downs, it runs right to the page and the URL is now:


The form loads with just:
To start, click here.

Then, when I click the linked "here", it just runs and loads the page with the URL:

There is no debug/session info (I can't remember if this was there before when it worked correctly).

Is this due to the evaluation expiration, the purchase, or common behavior? I rebooted and tried to repair the install  to no avail.  Nothing else changed configuration-wise before it headed south.  I would prefer not to have to do an uninstall/reinstall since it took me awhile to work through issues with the first install.

Please HELP!! I really need to step through my code and I am on a VERY tight deadline.
