View Full Version : Creating Try and Die

Hi all,

Can anyone help me create a Try and Die software in Installshield 11.

The problems I am facing are :

1. while adding the exe

After going to the Trialware view and adding a 'New File Configured for Trial Usage', I am not able to add an exe to on the right side of the explorer page. The step (1) is greyed out.

2. during acquiring a new license.

While 'Acquiring license' it asks for a username and password. This username and password is that of 'Installshield Activation Service' as the dialog box depicts. When I click on 'Create username' it takes me to the download section of the website where 'Installshield Activation Service' isn't listed. However after performing a 'Search' and filling up details for 'Evaluation copy of the Activation Service' I don't seem to get any link/e-mail from where I can get my user-Id and password.

The Installshield help is not of much help either. It just says, Add a file, Select the type of Trialware and Acquire License.

After all this it means that even 'Try and Die' requires Installshield Activation Service'.

Can anyone help me get over this mess.

Thanks
Prash
