I got the trial of Ulead's DVD movie factory off the April 2002 CD, installed it and started it and it said the 30 day trial period had ended!!! I then downloaded the same file from the Ulead website and it did exactly the same thing. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so did you manage to fix it, ie to get the blinking thing going!

Sounds to me as if you have previous installed a 30 day trial of this software before.

There will either be an entry in the registry or a small file in the program files that will specify when the program was first installed.

This kind of thing is implemented so as to prevent the uninstall/install process being used.

Thanks for the reply. I dont remember ever having installed it before. I have cleared every reference to the trial programme and reinstalled but still says trial over. Any idea where in the registry time details would be held? Thanks
