Groove's 90-day preview period

by Volker Weber

Just received this e-mail from a Groove developer that I post with his permission:

Hi Volker,

I popped in on your blog today, and saw what has been a familiar sight on my machine: the "Preview Period Expired" message. It's familiar to me because I'm the developer who coded it!

I just want to reassure you that the message doesn't affect the operation of Groove in any way; all data is preserved and all tools function normally. It's just a "nag", as you often see in shareware, which is meant to remind unlicensed corporate users of the preview edition's limited license terms. It should come up no more than once a day, and only if the account is unlicensed, over 90 days old, and our heuristics judge it to be on a corporate LAN. We try to be as conservative as possible on that last criterion, so we won't bug "personal use" folks.

If you want, you can always create a new test account, and you'll get 90 nag-free days.

Hope this helps,
Seth

Well said. Thank you, Seth.
