OK so I went to the esri site as you have noted in your reply, that was quick BTW thanks you. I want to keep my same username as I have on the esri site so I re-used it to establish a trial account but it comes back and tells me that username is already taken. Is there a problem using the same account for both Collector and my esri existing account.
So the development account is only for trial use of esri applications and the esri account is for support and forums. Is there a way of relating/combining the two accounts. Just asking for efficiency purposes only, too many accounts and far too many passwords.
You can use your developer account to sign into the forum. Once you have setup your developer account, you can sign into the forum. The first time it will take you to a global account setup, once that is done you can use that account for everything.
