Q: After installing the Microsoft Project trial software, when trying to open the program, a message comes up saying that my trial (license) has expired. The book says the software should provide a 120 (or 60) day evaluation but I couldn't even run it the first day after I installed it.
A: The trial version of Microsoft Project was provided directly from Microsoft. Unfortunately, Microsoft hard-codes expiration dates into their trial software and that date may have passed. There is currently a trial version of Microsoft Project 2003 available for download or on free CD at http://www.microsoft.com/office/project/prodinfo/trial.mspx.
Alternatively, your problem may have resulted from registry entries left on your system after prior installations of demo or trial Microsoft software. To help resolve this problem, you can follow the instructions in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q285/3/43.asp.
