How to Evaluate Graphics Mill

If you would like to evaluate Graphics Mill for .NET before making a purchase decision you need to register trial license key. Trial license key has 60 days evaluation period. If the evaluation period expires, invalid license key is specified (e.g. you have typed a license key with white spaces) or no license key is registered, Graphics Mill for .NET will not work. It will throw the TrialPeriodTimeException whenever you access it.

To request and register trial license key you should use License Key Registration Wizard which is distributed with the product. There are two ways to register trial license key using the utility: through the Web and manually.

  1. Click the Start button, point to All Programs, and then point to Aurigma. Point to Aurigma Graphics Mill 5.5 for .NET and click License Key Registration Wizard.

  6. After passing through all the wizards' steps you will see registration results. If trial license key cannot be registered for some reasons the information about it will be available in the last dialog. In that case, you should eliminate the reason and retry the registration. If you have any problems with it create support case. If the registration has passed successfully, 60 days trial key will be registered in your system.

    Note

    When you request trial key it is verified whether you already have trial license key. If no, i.e. you try to get trial key at the first time, you will get key with 60 days trial period. Otherwise, it checks your evaluation period. If it does not expire for the next 10 days you will get your existing key. Otherwise, new trial key will be sent and your evaluation period will be prolonged for 60 days. Pay attention, you are able to get new trial key only thrice.

    If you have any difficulties with online registration or you want to get trial license key at the fourth time please create support case.
