Filemaker Pro 15 licencing

Hi I have created an application in Filemaker Pro 15 and would like to allow users to access my beta version of application for 30 days.
Does anyone have a solution that is easy to use and intergrate and is preferably free or reasonably priced?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I suggest you consider the runtime capability (which is how a number of like applications create user files).

If your application does not require networking and can run as a standalone app, then John's suggestion of creating a Runtime version is a good one. You can set it to capture a TimeStamp on startup the first time it runs and the expire after 30 days.

However, if you want users to connect to a hosted solution, you'll need to create some sort of login/account system. You don't say whether this is a solution requiring FileMaker Pro on the other end or something that is being made available through a browser using WebDirect or PHP. If you're using WebDirect you can pretty easily create a new user/login account system and then have it expire after 30 days. You can do the same using the PHP API but it requires knowledge of PHP and the API to set it up. If you need users to connect using FM Pro, then you can also setup an account (or you set it up for them) and have them download the 30-day trial version of FM Pro and provide them with a server address (you can use the IP address but an alias using your domain might be better) and then FileMaker account user credentials.

What I'm trying to say is that there are a number of possibilities depending on what kind of app you have and how you are making it available. Specifying those parameters will narrow your options.
