you can write into some binary file in your application folder the date when your application was installed (better to get the date from the internet) and when application starts up check how many dates has passed (also better to check upon internet), there are many other solution,...depends what kind of applicaiton you have?

Hello,

I use the Express version of the following product to accomplish this within my VB.NET applications. It works very well for me.
