I installed over v1, didn't know that it is not free. So i have to buy again ? My comment is intended that the fonts it show are not in my language now, which is Slovenian.
Yes, you need to pay for Start11 V2. There are lots of new features in it. However, if you do not wish for it, you can uninstall Start11 V2 and reinstall Start11 V1. It should work as before.
