The software will have put something in the Registry or an INI file marking when it was first installed. However, you *are* supposed to pay for the software after the 30 day evaluation is over--you seem to be missing the operative word "evaluation" here.

I'm afraid that pjknibbs is right. The software can even have a counter in it to determine days.

However, sometimes you can get around this by changing the date.

If you search through the registry and .ini's, you might find them.

You also might try installing to a different directory.

There are cracks to be found for many shareware programs that may help at http://astalavista.box.sk/
It's good practice looking through the registry files though. incl. ini files esp an ini that is obviously part of the program.

Some people and companies work hard creating shareware programs letting people evaluate them for a time and then option to purchase.
I think as we refer to ourselves as experts we should also be professionals and not give advise on how to work around these issues.

I'm am not critizing anyone just an opinion.

Generally if the software is that good, its worth buying.
If the 30 days wasn't long enough to evaluate, many companies
will give you an extended period if you call them.
I think its great when a company gives you an eval period.
Saves lots of money and draws full of unused software.

I agree, if the software is that good then you should buy it to support the companies that developed it. If nobody ever bought it then before long there would be no more shareware.
