I can not use it on PC with 64 bit registrys.

I was looking to find in myProtector.pas
InvalidSystemTime to try to make one on base of it, but i can't findit.

And if someone makes copy of your date information in registry today- when app is working regulary. An then after trial time is over, turne date back on today and pastes the old date information.

Example date today is 30.12.12.
After encryption it becomes 123456.


After some time when tril will be over
Can he write 123456 in regystry and set system date to 30.12.12 and make app run?

How could he find this value and copy it if you store it in HKeyClassesRoot using a guid as key? I do so to hide it.

guid, not quid

something like {90B44F61-9DEF-436E-B702-A3D8D137809B}

Press CTRL+SHIFT+G in your delphi ide to create a unique new GUID

1. I write path in my code for registery
in Hkey......userRoot as somwhere\deeper\tohide.
And the key is always the same.
I have take anodher fast look and i have saw
Guide just as value in registerys. So, can you
explain me what is the connection betwen your
guide and path to registery?
2. Does not the softwares on the net whick can track which registerys were used in time period worries?

I repeat, you could use it as key name, not key value, where to store your values, but you could use also a file somewhere in the same way.

Anyway, if you are looking for something that should be not ever cracked you need some hardware key, as any coded program could be cracked.

Finally, there are lot of combinations that you can use just from your mind and concatenate them into one encrypted string, like for example the last access time of a specified file
