Unanswered: Set "Trial-Offer Period" Duration and Use Expiration
Is there a way to create in an MS Access file a "trial-offer period" - so that users may have access to and try out a dBase for a specific period of time and after the specified trial-offer period, user would be denied access to the dBase? Thanks for any and all suggestions.
The closest I've come to such a scheme is compiling the database into an mde/ade, then hard coding procedures that check the current date. There's a couple ways to track the original date. One way is to use tables and lock them down. Another would be registry entries. Yet another would be to use your own encryption format and lock the code.
