Back Date in Windows

  1. May 16, 2003 #1
    I have a software which demo licence expires on 15,FEB,2003.
    If you back date windows, it can know it and can not run.
    I believe there must be a file somewhere that stores the date history of my OS.
    So, how can I find this file and erase its data ?

    I'm sorry, but even of it was possible legallly we can't tell you. We don't want microsoft or whoever taking legal action of PF, do we? Discuss it elsewhere please....

    that trick worked years ago, but not anymore. I'm not really sure what mechanisms are behind it, and like FZ said, discussion of that nature is not a good thing to have in a public forum.

    Really though, computer software is sometimes reasonably priced. You should probably look into purchasing the full version. It usually includes more features then a demo version.
