Form1.caption help

Greetings experts,

I am using the demo version of VCLSkin, obtainable from         http://link-rank.com/index.htm

These skinning components are amazing, and add a great look to my programs, however as they have been downloaded as a trial, it automatically sets the form1.caption as 'Vclskin Demo'. As far as im aware, the only extra feature you get from buying the components is this form1.caption is unlocked to say what you want.

So i have a few queries regarding this....

a) Is it 'illegal' to try and remove this limitation of the trial, and hence change it to stop saying 'Vclskin Demo'
b) If (a) is all ok, how can i change what the form caption appears as (i have tried manually changing it, aswell as changing it on runtime)
c) If parts (a) and (b) cant be done, can anyone donte me $90 to buy the components ;)

Regards
-Jay

BTW, you can have your account revoked for asking questions of this nature on this forum.

That is why i did ask if it was illegal. I have no intention of breaking any laws, and so i posted here first.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

And im also now aware that it has nothing to do with form1.caption, as i added label, which returned the forms caption. Even though the caption appears as 'Vclskin Demo', the label still returns 'form1'. Ultimately, the caption is changing, but the skin coveres the title bar in the trial.

Guess i shall have to search around for some money then :D

(unless of course you still want to give me $90) :P

Can i just clarify for the second time,
I have absolutely no intention of breaking any laws regarding trial periods. I am keen to encourage users to pay for copyrighted work(s), however when you are skint like i am, it's worth asking in forums such as this one first :P

In response to any queries about my account being revoked (damn you make me worried sometimes eddie), i have not, will not, and do not intend to interfere with the limitations set by the trial of these components. My post here was to clarify whether it was illegal or not.

Didn't mean to scare you, really. it was only a notice. Now you have to go clean the brown stripe out of your underware, huh?

Hehe,

Didn't quite go that far lol.

I just don't like the words 'account' and 'revoked' put in the same sentence, unless it ends with 'which is why we are giving you £250'
