View Full Version : Creating Try and Die

03-08-2006, 06:08 AM
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.
