[QUOTE=Jito463;2122239]After re-reading your original post, it looks like I had read it right the first time. You said you had the trial version installed a while back. No matter how many times you actually use it, the trial period only lasts for 30 days. Uninstalling and reinstalling the program will not reset the clock. You can, however, install Alcohol 52% Free (as I suggested above), which will allow you to use the image creation and mounting capabilities of Alcohol, just no burning or premastering options.[/QUOTE]
but i removed the software before the trial period ws over surely this would halt the clock. and eitherway as i said if i perchased the retail version i assume i would recive the same error so i would be asking the same question as i am now.
