Program running for 9 months now says it is a trial version.

Installation of frontpage 2003 that was running for about 9 months says it is now a trial version and the key is invalid and the program will not open. Is this possible? Is there something like a microsoft update that could cause this and is there a solution? Thanks.

Is this a licensed version or some kind of trial version?

This is a licensed version that has been used for 9 months. Trying to figure out what might cause this. Is it possible somehow that this is a trial version and that it could run for 9 months? Is it possible that a micorosft update might cause this?

Well, since it *says* it is a trial version, I would have to say that it *is* a trial version.

If you have a receipt, then perhaps it is time to confront Microsoft, as long as the copy was purchased legally. And I am no attorney, so you are on your own here, sorry.
