MDE file shareware?

P: n/a
Hi,

I want to be able to offer a time limited version of my database. For
example I do not want the program to be able to run after x ammount of days
have gone by.

Could I create this inside access?

You will need the MDB file which then can be converted to a MDE file. I can
set up a limited time version of your database for you. If you want my help,

Here are some links/samples that should help with this topic:

http://members.shaw.ca/glenk/access2000.html
Look for the downloads:
"Updated have Database Expire After 30 Days Of Use"

"Updated have Database Expire After 30 Days Of First Being Opened."

MVP Tony Toews' thoughts on demos/expiration coding:

Peter De Baets has a product called KeyedAccess that will do this I believe:
http://www.peterssoftware.com/ka.htm

Paul Overway has something similar here:
http://www.logico-solutions.com/
--Go to Add-ins/Extras area and look for "Logico Solutions MDB Lock"

Also try here:

Since this is a public newsgroup and you aren't GOD, get over it you
bastard. You are just one of those that crawl out of the woodwork when
someone does something wrong in your eyes, you gripe about that then you
slink back into your hole never to help anyone and just sit on your perch
waiting to strike again like a snake in the grass.

So you're admitting you have been doing something wrong, then? 8)

This is most defeintely a public newsgroup and no-one appeared to claim
to be God. This is public newsgroup for people to discuss and SHARE
public information. Not to spot people in need of help and say "i know,
you don't so come and give me money to help you."

This info is publicly available so why pretend that you know more or
better than others here?

Thanks to those (Jeff etc...) who get this principle, this board will
continue and grow and be a resource for those in search of information
not in search of those who know but don't want to share.

Love to you all...

NO! The keywords are "...someone does something wrong IN YOUR EYES ..."

and as for Arno, once or twice responding to a post and giving very little
that might qualify for help, certainly dosen't make him a major player in
the newsgroup like you and me. He is nothing but a snake hiding in the
woodwork waiting to strike at any time. In my opinion, he is much worse than
Troll Don!

You are right if you have the idea that I am sort of 'hunting' your advertising...
I just hate it that you really don't give a shit about people who are asking you not to advertise here.

If i remember correctly, i posted to admonish you. The job of posting
the most relevnat material was already ably carried out by others.

I am only concerned that you seem to think that this PUBLIC service is
for you to use as an advertisment board.

I would have added more if there was more to add that i knew. I do not
know everything, but i knopw when something is wrong. Just tell people
the answer if you want to post here, stop advertising that you will
help them away from this board. I have nothing at all against you
running a business but you really need to find a proper forum for
offering your help.

I can offer you a service to improve your happiness, all for a small
fee of course.

Alternatively you can get a free copy of it by watching any comedy show
on telly.

If you want to continue to insult people because you are feeling picked
on then carry on. You are behaving very badly and i would hate to be
one of your customers as you are probably just as nasty to them.

Good luck advertising where you are supposed to.

Rob.

P.S. the lots of love comment was meant to disspate the anger not
inflame you. Stand back from this for a minute and you will see how
unreasonable you are being.

Nov 13 '05 #21

First of all the response was anonomously signed. How did you know who it
was? Just like XMVP!!!!

<<Thanks to those (Jeff etc...) who get this principle, this board will
continue and grow and be a resource for those in search of information
not in search of those who know but don't want to share.>>

He makes the accusation that I don't want to share. You know well, Tim, that
that is not true. I have helped you in the past and I am a frequent
contributor to the newsgroups.

<<Love to you all...>>

What a HIPOCRITE!!!!

I didn't say that you never shared - only that you didn't share in this
case and chose to advertise instead.

That is what upset myself and other enough to say something.

I am no hipocrite as you put it, i suggest that you look up the word in
the dictionary.

Why not just stop getting all hot under the collar and just relax. Many
are complaining to you about your tactics for posting adverts, just
stop now you've been called up on it.

Why not just smile, relax, and enjoy this wonderful invention instead
of getting upset that you are being told off.

It's funny - i always thought that people could work out differences
and come to agreement but it seems that there are just some people who
are so ignorant that they cannot see anyone elses viewpoint and will
throw a complete tantrum when they are shown to be in the wrong.

It is a shame that you cannot see when you should just bow out
gracefully and leave things alone. An apology for going against the
advised use of the boards would not go amiss but I assume that you
wouldn't know how to apologise even if you had an autocue to guide you.

<slither>Hope you find a way to be at peace with yourself</slither>

I won't respond again - you are not worth the effort anymore.
