You wont be able to get it here

Hi Idiculla,

I quess you missed some information. The following line can be found in the description:
This is NOT FREE software. You will need to buy a key to unlock it.

Best regards,
Trowa

As Trowa said, free download is not same as free usage

You may have free download and free usage

You may have free download and a trial usage for a limited time or limited number of usages ( I think this software falls under this class)

You may have free download but need to pay for usage.

TrowanD and Rizvisa1 are correct.

There is a lesson to be learned here. The download is free as most software downloads, however one must pay attention to the type of software license.

Shareware and trial versions must be paid for. The only one that are free are freeware and open source. In this case Publisher is shareware.

Regards
