PROCESS TO INSTALL A EXPIRED SOFTWARE AGAIN.
Sometimes it happens that by chance we get some software which are not very popular but excellent in their utility in that case we are not able to get the serial key or crack of that software.Then we have to use the trial versions with no any other option.
1 This tip works only for that software which asks for path or provide opportunity to install software in any other place then program files in c drive during time of installation of software
2 Careless registry editing can cause irreversible damage. Thus,performing backups of the registry before editing it is highlyrecommended by Microsoft
STEPS TO PERFORM THE OPERATION
1 UNINSTALL THE SOFTWARE WHICH HAS TO BE INSTALLED AGAIN.
2 TRY TO INSTALL THAT SOFTWARE AGAIN BUT CHANGE THE PATH FROM THE PREVIOUS ONE.IT WILL BE BETTER TO USE SOME OTHER DRIVE ALTERNATELY.
IF IT DOES NOT WORK THEN
USE THE REGISTRY EDITOR OF WINDOWS OR TUNE UP UTILITY SOFTWARE ( http://www.tune-up.com )
3 FOR OPENING WINDOWS REGISTRY EDITOR TYPE REGEDIT.EXE IN RUN (FOR XP USERS)
VISTA AND WINDOWS 7 USERS CAN GET IT BY TYPING IN SEARCH REGEDIT ONLY
4 OPEN THE TREE BY DOUBLE CLICKING THE HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) FOLDER PRESENT IN THE LEFT SIDE AND UNDER THAT AGAIN DOUBLE CLICK FOLDER NAME SOFTWARE . LOCATE THE FOLDER OF THE SOFTWARE WHOSE TIME HAS BEEN EXPIRED (IT MUST BE PRESENT THERE WITH THE NAME OF THE SOWTWARE OR BY ITS VENDOR NAME) AND DELETE THE WHOLE FOLDER FROM THERE.
5 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) REPEAT THE STEP 5 IN THIS FOLDER TOO.
6 CLOSE THE REGISTRY EDITOR AFTER DOING STEP 4 AND 5.
7 SERACH FOR THE FOLDER WITH THE NAME OF THE SOFTWARE OR BY THE VENDOR NAME IN APPDATA AND PROGRAM FILES ALSO
8 IT MUST BE IN THE C:Users
LOCATE AND DELETE THE FOLDER FROM HERE ALSO, IF IT IS PRESENT.
9 NOW INSTALL THE SOFTWARE AGAIN AND CHANGE THE PATH FROM THE PREVIOUS ONE .
10 NOW YOU ARE READY TO USE THE EXPIRED SOFTWARE AGAIN.
