30 Day Timer

How do I setup a timer to disable my application say 30 days after it was first run ?

Thanks,
Phil.

You could store the date/time of when your app is first run, as a value in the registry.

Re:

If you don't want to use the registry and the date functions, just set the interval property of your timer to 60000 and in the Timer function use a conter

iCount = iCount + 1

When iCount is equal to 30 * 60 * 24 end your application

Wouldn't using this method mean the application could not be stopped during the course of the 30 days, or it will restart the counter?

Santi, what happens when the computer reboots? =P

You could make use of Windows Task Scheduler.
Check out AT.exe: http://www.microsoft.com/windows200...ver/help/at.htm

You're all right, i just thought the purpose was to be some service in a server... never mind... neither thought it could be for licensing

As i'm dealing with services now,i can only think about them...
