There are no differences between the registered versions and evaluation versions, except the evaluation version is designed to expire after 30 days.
If ordering online, customers should receive their registration email within few hours of placing their order, normally a lot sooner. If ordering by check, or purchase order, registration email is delayed until payment is received.
Check any spam filters that you have installed, it is possible that your registration e-mail was snagged by an errant spam filter. If you are using a spam challenge system, check to see if your registration e-mail is waiting for confirmation. I do try and respond to spam challenges but it can delay the registration e-mail. Make sure you supplied a valid e-mail address when submitting your order. If you have not received your registration e-mail within 24 hours, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

Discounts are open to students, professors and computer labs, providing discounted products are not used for commercial purposes. If you find yourself needing or using the products for commercial purposes, please respect the license terms by purchasing, or asking your client or employer to purchase a license to use the product, at regular prices. To request academic discount contact email@example.com with some valid proof of academic association.
