Same problem. Your solution worked for me, too, however...

Now TCMD says "the test version has expired..." and my key is no longer working. Do I need a new key?
The registration key hasn't changed. The key is in a file in "C:\ProgramData\JP Software\TakeCommand.20.0.key" -- did you delete that file (or directory)?
 
No, I have the directory and file, and it says

[Take Command v20.0 Registration]
Key=US***************************B

(with most of the key edited out here)

Works as usual with my V17, not at all after the manually downloaded V21 install.
 
Hallo Rex,

no, I didn't. The key worked fine befor with V.20.17, and does so again now that I have reinstalled that version.

And I see that I am not alone with this problem. I'll have a look again after the weekend.

Glad it worked for you. (Especially since I don't have a plan B!)
A possible "Plan B" (also mentioned in another thread):

You could -as a workaround- temporary disable the Signature check:
by editing Updater.ini and then start the update procedure again

Updater.ini
;Flags=PerMachine|ShowConfigOptionsButton|VerifyDigitalSignature
Flags=PerMachine|ShowConfigOptionsButton
