It is annoying when you have just downloaded an application stating free download, and what you find is a trial version, it happened many times with me, so I was wondering if I could bypass this trial period to run my desired trial version application as long as I want.
My search lead me to a utility called “RunAsDate“, it’s a small utility that allows you to run an application in the date/time you specify. It doesn’t have anything to do with your current system date and time but it intelligently injects date/time that you specify into the desired application so that you can run that application as long as you want.
It doesn’t even require installation, execute the .exe file, specify the path of the application you want to run, specify new date/time you want your application to run in, and you are done.
But there is a small exception to how it works, it can’t change the trial period of trial version application that get their date/time from a remote server. Yeah! but still it will work perfectly fine for low ended programs so do give it a try.
RunAsDate requires operating system supporting 32bit applications so older version of windows before 2000 are not supported, on a side note it also has a x64 version.
