Dear Filemaker PPL,



Just wondering if there is a way to prevent re-installation of a filemaker solution on same computer.



1. The solution is not a runtime solution. I know that runtimes can be protected through re-stallation prevention mechanisms via 3rd party software. But my solution cannot be a runtime and need to prevent re-installation in some way or another when trial period has expired.

2. Solution has a trial period of 30 days.....preventing re-installation will stop a user from using the solution again and again every 30 days

3. The Solution has import of data disabled for trial period versions



On these facts I am just wondering if there is a way to prevent the end user from downloading a demo trial again and reusing for another 30 days on same computer?


Any feedback be it positive or negative is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
