So you are writing a software and need to make that copy as "EVALUATION" for certain days right?

User may change time for several purpose, so changing the time will not run this program is not a solution.

Your program have some evaluation period.

While exiting the program you will write the current time in file/registry (this should store in a path that user cannot find easily).
So next time you will check the current time and the time that is in the file/registry. if the current time is less than or the time exceeds the expire, your program will simply close.

Alternative is, instead of restricting time, limit the no. of time the application that is using.

If your program needs internet connectivity then your option can be easily implemented by checking the server time.
