How To Extend 30 Day Trial Software To Run Forever

If you have recently downloaded a trial software and want to test it for more than the trial period which is normally 30 days, this article is exactly for you. This article describes different ways to extend the trial period of trial software. The below methods will not be able to get you complete software. If the trial version of the software runs with limitations, they will still run in limitation as the trial software will always remain in trial using these methods.

Trial software How To Extend 30 Day Trial Software To Run Forever

Please note that we are suggesting these ways only for people who want to evaluate the software for more than 30 days and then buy the software. It is always recommended to buy a software if you like it. This will help the developers keep the software up to date.

The best way to use the software in extended evaluation is to contact the software vendor and ask them for an extended evaluation time. They will most probably entertain your request and give you some extended evaluation time.

Reinstall the software/Reset Date and Time

The easiest way to reset a trial version of the software is that you can uninstall it and then re-install it again. This will reset the trial  version. Most modern software use advanced techniques and will not allow you to reset the trial version of the software even after re-installation.

The other workaround is to play with your system date and time. You can adjust your system clock to a previous date after installing the software. The software will continue to work as it uses the system date to see if the 30 day trial period is over or not. Most modern software have protection against this method. If these two methods fail, you may see the next method.

Use a third party uninstaller

Usually trial software will save their licensing information in a registry key or a file on the hard drive. Most third party uninstaller tools will include a registry monitor and a file monitor. They will save each and every action performed by the installer of the trial software. You can then uninstall the trial software using the third party uninstaller which will delete all the registry entries and files created by the trial software.

You may try out some free apps like Revo Uninstaller, Glary Utilities and GeekUninstaller. You may also try out more powerful commercial apps like Total Uninstall or Your Uninstaller. If the trial software uses the Internet to get the licensing info, you may block Internet access for that particular program.

Backup and restore registry

If you haven’t installed the software yet and you’re sure that the software uses the Windows Registry to save its licensing information, you can backup the registry and then restore it when the software is about to expire.

Using Time Stopper software

Time Stopper How To Extend 30 Day Trial Software To Run Forever

Time Stopper is a popular software which has been created exactly for the task of freezing the time of trial software. Time Stopper will stop the trial time when it is used. If the trial period has already ended, it is of no use to use Time Stopper as it will not be able to reverse the time.

Using Time Stopper is quite easy. Just browse the executable of the trial software, choose the date that you want to freeze. This date should be within the trial period of the software otherwise it will not work. Then you can open the software on the specified date and time.

Please note that after patching the trial software with Time Stopper, you must always use the Time Stopper utility to open that software otherwise the trial will end instantly.

Download Time Stopper

Please note that Time Stopper installer will try to install other addon software. You can uncheck these not to be installed.

Using RunAsDate software

RunAsDate How To Extend 30 Day Trial Software To Run Forever

RunAsDate is a portable software very similar to Time Stopper. RunAsDate allows you to run a program on the date and time you have specified. The advantage of RunAsDate is that it does not change the system date and time. It will only inject the date and time into the desired application.

Using RunAsDate is quite easy. You will need to browse the application path, specify date and time and hit the Run button to execute the app on the specified date and time. You can also create a desktop shortcut for the frozen app.

Download RunAsDate

There is another software called Trial Reset. It is a special registry cleaner which can remove the licensing information registry keys of many shareware/demo software so that the software can be installed again with full trial time. I haven’t included it in this list as there are many negative review about the software.

Oh, please do not get me wrong. This new section is not about computers, electronics or any engineering stuff, but rather I am currently constructing a new corpus based on Spectrum, the monthly publication from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers USA, from July 2007 to date. Having been a member for over 20 years since 1992, I am always fascinated by some of the terms scientists use when they talk about or envision their new inventions or methodologies. How many of them eventually come into practice? Could there be some insights we could possibly derive, from the linguistics perspective?
