How to extend the time restrictions of trial software?

by Gloria SP / June 15, 2010 3:34 PM PDT

Some trial software gives allows too short time (5 -15 days) to get into it and learn about it.

The question:
Is there any program (or method) which can extend the time restrictions of trial software?

Any help from fellow Mac users is appreciated!

I use Mac with OSX 10.5

Sure, it's called buying the program. Then you get an unlimited amount of time to use it.

Respect the wishes of the developer(s) for that program. If you like the program by the end of the trial period, or find it useful, buy it. If you don't like it, or can't afford it, delete it from your system. It's that simple.

Reload the OS and viola. A new trial period begins.
