This tutorial is to show how to run a software in fully functional mode again after the trial period is over.
You know good apple don’t come as free like good software. Most of the case you will find all type of software for your need. If you need it for a small purpose then it is better to use it in the trial period mode. After the trial time your software is gone. I think your work is done also.
But what would happen, if you need it again?
That is the question, how could you use it again for the small job. Wait!!! I am showing you the way. It is very easy; just do as I said below.
1. Download the program named RunAsDateI(19KB)below.
2. Unzip the file and run the program. You will see a screen.
3. Browse and select the location of the launching file of the program
4. Put a date between the trial time of the program when it worked correctly in the trial time.
5. Now click run and this program will launch that in the trial period.
6. If you find that this is not working the try to put the last date of the trial period and check if it works.
My suggestion is to use Jan 1, 2012 if your trial period expires on Jan 2, 2012; for example. So, how it works actually; I am telling in brief.
When you install a software programs for the first time, it craetes an entry into the Windows Registry with installation Date and Time, installed path etc. When you run the program, it compares the current system date with that in the registry. Thus, it can understand the trial period time and decides whether it will run or not. But this is not so easy that you change the Date & Time and it will work again.
The program injects the date you specify in the program to compare with the installation time. It intercepts the kernel API call that supply the current time (GetSystemTime, GetLocalTime, GetSystemTimeAsFileTime) to the system. Moreover it doesn’t change the system date and time also. This small utility RunAsDate works Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista and 7.
