WP Smush Pro upgrade

I have a "WPMU DEV Full Annual Membership" and download the WP Smush Pro plugin. I was testing it on my local Mac with MAMP install. It runs fine but said that I could upgrade to the Pro version. The zip I download was 163623_wp-smush-pro-2.4.5.zip.
How do I unlock the Pro features on my local site?
Do I have to install " WPMU DEV Dashboard" plugin to upgrade to Pro?
Is there any way to just use the plugin without the WPMU DEV Dashboard?

FYI, I installed the same plugin on a test site with a hosting company and had the same problem about upgrading.

Thanks for any help,
Dave

    Hello davepierson ,

    Hope you are well today and thanks for asking us. :slight_smile:

    Do I have to install " WPMU DEV Dashboard" plugin to upgrade to Pro?

    No, "WPMU DEV Dashboard" is not a mandatory for WP Smush Pro.

    Is there any way to just use the plugin without the WPMU DEV Dashboard?

    Best way would be deleting your freemium version of WP Smush and installing Pro version. Here are steps you can follow to do that. :slight_smile:

    #1) Go to Plugins > Installed > WP Smush Pro and delete it.
    #2) After that, download Pro version's zip from here,
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wp-smush-pro/
    #3) After that, go to Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin and select zip which you downloaded
    #4) Click button saying "Install" and you're done. :slight_smile:

    Hope this helps you. :slight_smile:
    Best Regards,
    Milan
