does anyone know if its possible to make an application disable itself given a certain amount of time has passed. I thought that I could use the date, but then whats stopping a user changing the date back to use the application again, If you can point in the direction of where i can get help let me know?

A soloution would be to log the last time the program was used and then check when it's started up whether the current time is before the last run time.

Edit: But in general 30 day-trial schemes get cracked without any real effort, so I'd say you'd be better of releasing the "trial" program with some features missing.

You could set up a simple php website so that if the user runs your program whilst connected, it can request a date from the server.

Just a thought.

Or you could DL the page from www.timeanddate.com
