"Tasker isn't Responding" (v. 5.6 on Oreo)

Hello João,

I have been enjoyed a paid version of Tasker for years and recently subscribed to your AutoApps. However, in the last few weeks, Tasker is often freezing. Also, profiles that previously worked are suddenly freezing (see screenshot for examples of both). I have been using Tasker on Oreo (Samsung Galaxy S8+, v. 5.2) for almost a year, so this can't be the source of the problem. When the problem appeared, I verified that Tasker is excluded from battery optimization. I also reinstalled and then upgraded to v. 5.6, but the problem persists.
1. Can you guess what may be the source of the problem?
2. Since I purchased Tasker directly from you, I'm not eligible for the Beta program. How can I obtain a Beta version? I hope that it can solve the problem.
Thank for your help.

I'm happy to support you because you are always so quick to respond to my questions. Two questions:

1. I already subscribe to your AutoApps. Is Tasker part of the package? If not, you may want to include it.

2. If I repurchase Tasker on Play store, I'll pay $2.99. What's the benefit of buying it directly from you?

Thanks again!

Hi again :) Thank you very much!

1. Tasker is not included. It's not an "AutoApp" (Tasker plugin).

2. There's no benefit in buying it from me other than you don't have to have Google Play installed on your phone :)

Hope this clarifies it!

Thank you. I installed -- and so far it works fine.

But how do I validate it? I purchased directly in 2013, and the validation code I use is no longer accepted in this version.

I acquired Tasker (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/tasker/SkCtZxnts4Y%5B101-125%5D) recently, but unfortunately I couldn't keep Tasker's old direct purchase licensing mechanism (the server belongs to the old owner), so I had to come up with a new one.
You have 3 options:
1 - You can backup your data, uninstall Tasker and then re-install it from Google Play
2 - You can purchase a new direct purchase license from me and use a special direct purchase version of Tasker that I'll send you. A new license is $4.
3 - If you really want to, and you still have the old license, I can issue a license with the new direct purchase system so you can continue to use it. Please note though, that you first purchased Tasker many years ago, and I didn't get the revenue from that, so it would be great if you could support Tasker's development a bit more by purchasing this upgrade :)

Let me know what you think, thanks!
