Theme Blackair and WPBakery Page Builder - how to activate?

Hi everybody,

I have following situation. I bought the Blackair WP Theme form Themeforst everything was fine. A few days later I become a notice to update my plugins.

Now the WPBakery Page Builder asks for a license code.
I pressed the link “activate your copy” of WPBakery Page Builder because I want to use the full-version with activated Template library.

It get me to the WPBakery Page Builder settings page.
I pressed the big blue button “Activate WPBakery Page Builder”.

The next page told me that I have no license.
OK. I press on Purchase License.

After that the codecanyon checkout page opens, and I bought this license.

But now nothing works?!
I can’t type in the code and the plugin inside the download is the WPBakery Visual Composer?!

I’ve I try to activate WPBakery Visual Composer i get and error the file “js_composer.php” is already in use?

I paid 45 $ and there is no support to make this purchase backwards.

I hope someone can help me.

If Visual Composer is included into a theme that you’ve purchased, then you don’t need to register and get the license of Visual Composer. The Visual Composer and other plugins (if there are more of them, like Slider Revolution) will work fine and you don’t need to buy additional license.

But, when there is a new version of Visual Composer, you can’t update it until the theme author does not update the theme and version of Visual Composer which is included in theme.

On other side, you can buy license for VC (to activate it) and to have the latest version (easy update - no wait for theme author update) but that also can be a problem - what if the latest version of VC is not compatible with your theme? In that case, you still need to wait until the author update the theme - and that is in your situation.

Probably you can require a refund but will be approved or not - I don’t know. I hope someone else can help you a little more.
