Community Edition read-only after updating to version 12.0

Hi, I updated my VP Community Edition from version 11.1 to version 12.0 and now my projects appear as read-only. When I go to Help -> About it says that my evaluation license will expire in 30 days.

What should I do to be able to edit my projects again? I already tried to reinstall it and nothing happened. Also, if I need a new key, where can I get it, since the program didn’t give me the option to get one?
