hi,

i always wondered why one cannot re-install an expired trail version.

i have been using few free versions recently like (JCreator pro, folder lock etc..)

although i have completely uninstalled the software and re-install it i find that the number of days left is '0'.

how come this happen? is it that the these softwares are leaving few files in my computer which would help them know at a later stage?

i would be grateful if anyone could help me..

thank u,

PS: i tht this is the most relevant section to post my doubt, if not can anyone suggest the appropriate section to post this topic

The thing is that a trial version is excactly what it says. A trial. You will need to now purchase the program. Or maybe find a similar freeware version.

These companies make thier money off of the paid for versions. If everyone did what you are suggesting, then where would they be?

Let me suggest that you start a new topic in the appropriate forum, requesting info. on the chance that there are some similar freeware versions available.

Deodar,
you will NEVER find that kind of help in this forums. If you want to pursue illegal activities, take it elsewhere, or better yet, don't do it at all....

Noone here condones pirating software.

Just think about it:
If there were enough people like you in the world, then companies would STOP making trail versions.

Here is a handly list of useful and free applications to replace commercial products:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Fre...apps-t3616.html

Companies are decent enough to let you try their programs and applications before purchasing to find out whether you like them and can use them, rather than just tell you pay, download, and live with it. Rather than find ways to get around the trial period, either find a freeware alternative or support the company by purchasing the product.

John
