Extend Trial Periods on Software: Software’s are most essential part for any computer. Without any software PC is just useless. Normally two different restriction of software are available, one is free for life time and another is not free, hare you must require to buy license key. Here in this tutorial we are only discourse about chip code for the second type of software. The software like IDM (Internet Download Manager), Antivirus are very common but much essential of daily uses. However that software are came with free trial version of 30 or 14 days, after 30 days you’ll get irritating notice to bye license for extend your trial period. Many people asked why that software is offers 30 days free trial. It’s marketing strategy to addict you on their product. Now the question is how to use that software for long team. Either you can buy or you can read our tutorial. The second option well deserves for you if you don’t have enough money but still wants to use those paid software. Here in this article we’re briefly elaborates to extend or reset trial period of any software with popper direction.
NO! Here we don’t promises to give you any license key or patch or crack version of any software. In this tutorial is come with the several working tricks for Reset Trial Period of Any Software. There are three types of promises we are describe bellow. The main motive of all the three methods is reset or deletes the saved registry of software. Here the methods are…

Hare this method we’ll use to edit the registry date of the software. There are many software (RunAsDate, Time Stopper, Trial-Reset 4.0) are can do so. However this method will be no more working after finished trial period.
RunAsDate Free Software
RunAsDate is free software available and give you better promises to edit the registry date of any software. Most of the people preferred to use this software than other. Here the guideline how to Reset Trial Period of Any Software By RunAsDate.
Time Stopper is another useful application for Reset Trial Period of Any Software. Time Stopper is same alternate of RunAsDate. The function and interface is very similar.
However you install any software in your system, all the data is recorded in the windows registry. That is why you must edit or delete the software registry from your computer to Reset Trial Period of that Software. Here in this method we will know step by step process to manually delete software registry.
Normally if you think that reinstall is the solution, then you might fool because the software already registers its key on your PC registry. If the earlier step is difficult you you then you can delete software registry by third party software called Absolute Uninstaller. Here the steps..
Those are most useful and working ways to extend and reset of 30 or 14 days trial period of any software. Those hacks are free and very simple to operate. Now day software crack versions are available but which may causes several damage on your PC like virus affected or crash HHD/ SSD files. So it’s better to try among the above process. Know us if you can’t improvisation those steps on filed.
This article aims to give an overall description of various strategies on time trials of software. Its findings are mostly applicable for Mac OS X (Snow Leopard), but some findings are general for other Unices and unix-like systems (Linux). A basic knowledge of Mac (or some other unix or unix-like) system is required.
It is not intended to encourage somebody to repeatedly reset the trial period in purpose to use the commercial software without payment, hence no hints for concrete software are included.
Time trials allow developers to offer their software to potential customers for a short period of time (generally 2-4 weeks) so the user can explore this software in his preferred settings (own computer, calm place etc.) and decide to buy it. The trial software is sometimes combined with reduced functionality (e.g. if the output is an image, it contains a watermark with the name of the application). After the trial period expires, the application stops work (e.g. Slidepad) or the functionality is significantly reduced (e.g. you cannot save anything — applications from iWork).
Men is generally a curious creature, so he/she wonders how the applications knows, when the trial time started, wether the time trial is over and wether it is possible do some trick (I mean simple trick, not reverse engineering) and reset the trial period.
When you download and install the software with trial time, the application (software) must get know, when the trial period started and wether the trial period is finished. So let’s think how to tell the application the start date of the trial period:
Time trials overview
I leave aside the question, how the application computes the end of trial period. I assume that it simply takes current date and subtracts the start date. So one can think that it if he/she changes the current date in the computer, the application will think that the trial is not over. Yes, it may work, but please do not try it on unix (unix-like) system, this may lead to unexpected consequences. Moreover Macs use by default NTP (Network Time Protocol) daemon which synchronises the clock (it is convenient for normal user — it always displays the precise time).
In this section we will analyse in detail the last item from the previous list.
First of all we must say that the information about trial period must be hidden somewhere in the filesystem. I don’t know about any system service where you can store some arbitrary information and then pick it up. So the question is: “Where it is?”. In the following text we will talk about “hidden information” (as developers tend to hide this from the user).
There are several types of installations in Mac OS:
The first 2 groups can possibly store some information during the installation process on any place on the disc (it runs with Administrator privileges), but to be honest I don’t know any such application. The last group cannot store any information, which needs admin privileges. From these sentences we can deduce that it the application itself, not the installer, who stores the hidden information somewhere.
So we run an application from our user account (without admin privileges). The application stores somewhere information that the trial period has started, so guess where it is?
Now it is time to say something more about file system HFS+ used by Mac OS X. For each file, you can store data in the file itself (as expected), then also in so called Resource Fork (see e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resource_fork) and in extended attributes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_file_attributes). The later two cases are hidden for normal user (et least at its raw form, e.g. if you “colour” files in Finder, you use the extended attributes), you need use commandline utilities to view them (e.g. lsmac from osxutils, xattr) and it is a bit uncomfortable to display them.
In this section I will describe basic procedure how to find a place where the application stores the information about the trial period.
In the text above we deduced that the hidden information is in the home directory, where it can be in particular?
Let’s meet our new friends which will help us:
Now I will give some advices, how to find the hidden information ordered from easier to harder.
At first we must clarify, how to check that the trial was reset. Some applications display a big dialog window with information that this as a trial version etc. In the first run and in the consecutive runs it displays only smaller window showing how many days are left. So it is easy to see that the big window appears again. Nevertheless some applications show the same window all the time (so there is no indication that you start the trial period ), so the only clue is number of days left. In such a case you have to wait one or two days, and check the number of days left. In the following text I will only write something like “check wether the trial time was reset”, which may mean to wait one or two days, please keep this in mind (this is the main reason to enable fast user switching – you can continue in work in your regular account).
This is the most painful method, so I use it after failure of previous methods. It is similar to usage of Instruments.app, but uses a different utility.
If you still didn’t manage to reset the trial, it may have two reasons:
