An odd question...

Hey guys, here's a bit of an odd question I had:

How would I write a script so that a program could only be activated by another program? For example, I'd have the main part of the program on my computer, but it wouldn't function unless I had a CD/Floppy/Flash Drive with the proper program on it in the computer. Any ideas?

Oh, and also, is there a way to make a sort of "free trial" of a program which refuses to function after a certain number of time or uses?

Thanks in advance guys!

For the free trial question:

Probably have a variable set in the registry, of which you add 1 every time the program is used. Then have the program check once it reaches a certain number and if it has, the program will display a message saying that the free trial has ended.
