How to use a trial program forever without activation


  • RunAsDate is a small utility that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn't change the current system date, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.
  • RunAsDate intercepts the kernel API calls that returns the current date and time (GetSystemTime, GetLocalTime, GetSystemTimeAsFileTime), and replaces the current date/time with the date/time that you specify It works with Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista.
  • You have to follow these tips carefully to successfully “hack” a software and make it run in it’s trial mode forever
1. Note down the date and time, when you install the software for the first time.
2. Once the trial period expires, you must always run the software using RunAsDate.
3. After the trial period is expired, do not run the software(program) directly. If you
run the software directly even once, this “hack” may no longer work.
4. It is better and safe to inject the date of the last day in the trial period.
For example, if the trial period expires on jan 30 2009, always inject the date as jan
29 2009 in the RunAsDate.
