I gave you the download link for PW 4.2 free edition which is the last version which has Dynamic>Basic conversion for free. There is no key for this freeware.

If you can afford to pay for it then by all means purchase the latest version of PW, which is the most valuable tool we use here and has helped thousands of users since Win7 release.
