    Hi, I have an expensive piece of trial-ware. Is there a way I can set Vista up to reset every time I boot up to defeat the 7-day time limit? Thanks.

    * cough * fatxplorer *cough*.

    I have an old vista partition I don't use much anymore and I figured maybe I could use it for trial ware and such.

    That is why most people would use a virtual machine to test or trial software.

    Thanks for the reply. Can you recommend a virtual machine app? I've never used one before.

    VMWare or Virtualbox I would say are most popular also you can add SLIC 2.1 to both of these and activate vista or windows 7 look in Virtualization section.

    Hint search the net for VMware Workstation 8.0.4 Build 744019 Lite
