Do you mean as in a way to offer a trial version of an app you are making?

There are a few options, somewhere in the example scripts section there is some code for that kind of thing.

Otherwise, here are some thoughts (though, mostly easy to get around)

1. Set the first run date and time in the registry, then have your app read it on first launch, it can then be precise to the minute when it will lock up.

2. Use an ini file

3. Have your app refer back to an "account" of sorts on a website, when the user first runs the app, they fill in a short form, and it logs those details onto the website, then use the option as shown in example 1.. this is posisbly the most secure, however not impossible to get past (actually, you could get past it in a few minutes if you knew what you were doing)

.. best go check that example script.
