If you have not purchased a license for InstallShield, you can install it and use it for a limited number of days without activating it. When you use InstallShield before activating it, it operates in evaluation mode, and some of its functionality is not available. For details, see KB article Q200900 (http://support.installshield.com/kb/view.asp?articleid=Q200900). Note that when you activate InstallShield, the evaluation limitations are removed.
