Here we will discuss a trick about how to hack trial version software in Windows based operating system. It is not exactly hacking of software instead you can call it trick because we are just going to change the time of particular software system without changing our System time.
How trial version of any software works?
Most of the professional applications comes with trial version in which you can use that system for free but only for limited time period. Once the trial period is over, software stops to work, and user need to purchase the full version to use it again.
Now if you know how the software or application determines when should trial period over or in other words when to stop working, you can crack it. When you installed any application into your system it make a entry into your system’s registry and every time you try to open your application it first check that entry in registry files.
How to crack / hack trial version software?

Here we will discuss how to change the date and time of particular software to hack the trial version software / application.
Using RunAsDate to hack trial version software
RunAsDate is a small utility tool that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn’t change the current system date and time of your computer, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.
You can run multiple applications simultaneously, each application works with different date and time, while the real date/time of your system continues to run normally.
How does it work ?
RunAsDate intercepts the kernel API calls that returns the current date and time (GetSystemTime, GetLocalTime, GetSystemTimeAsFileTime), and replaces the current date/time with the date/time that you specify
Note: This article doesn’t support hacking the trial software version. Buffercode recommends to buy and use genuine software. This article is just an informative content about “Run as Date” Software.
