I found the reset button , so please just ignore this post.
I’m trying to make a trial version of an existing project, and use the default certificate with a 30 days validity. But I just get “Trial period expired” on the nag screen. This even happens when making a portable version, where the license info is stored on disk, which is weird. I can make a new project with the same files, and then it works. Any idea why it won’t work with the existing project?
I found that if I remove the 30 days expiration, it works. But as soon as I set the expiration (no matter if it’s 1 or 3000 days), the problem is there again.
Also, if I set it to expire after a number of runs, it works.
I have also tried deleting the registered certificate, to no avail.
I have found that whatever you put in the default certificate when first compiling the exe, sticks. So if I put in 5 days at first, I can’t change this later to e.g. 30 days. It stays at 5 days no matter what (unless I select no access without registration). If I select no access without registration at first build, I can’t change this later to a time limited certificate (but I can change it to number of runs limited).
I guess this is not by design, since there’s no way to “deactivate” the default certificate. So the only way to make a trial version is to start a new project. You can’t clone it, since the setting sticks then as well. You have to start from scratch, which is kind of a pain when you have lots of custom settings.
