License/Trial packages built for MSIX

Thu Apr 01, 2021 6:06 pm

I have used the license/trial feature when creating MSI installers in the past, but having difficulty getting it to work when building an API/MSIX package. I know that the trial dll protects itself against debuggers, but wonder if the container runtime is also an issue.

Should this feature work under MSIX?

Symptoms: Although set for a 30 day trial, for an unlicensed fresh install it immediately claims a 70 day trial has expired. Even the license extension keys fail to work. It's always possible I did something wrong, but I am looking for confirmation that the feature should be working before I debug further.

Hello Tim,

I have tested this and I was also able to reproduce the behavior.

This looks to be a limitation of our Trial support in MSIX. I will forward this to our development team and hopefully this will be fixed in a future version of Advanced Installer.

I will update this thread when this will be fixed.
