Registration & Registry
Posted on 2005-04-22
Question re. VB & Registry.
I've built in app. which I'd like to be time-limited shareware. So, am after some code that does this:
1. after app is used for time X, it writes a value to registry to indicate 'expired'.
2. if app is registered, it writes a value to registry to indicate 'active'.
3. if user deletes the app, downloads and installs another instance of the app and tries running it, app will check if 'expired' value for the app exists in registry. If it exists, app is not permitted to run. If however value 'active' is read, app will run.
Appreciate your help, experts!
