So when I got my computer, I guess it came installed with a trial of PhotoStory 3.1. I didn't know it was only a trial version and that it expired after a certain amount of time/uses.

So, I made a story (video w/ music and photos) and was ready to burn it to a DVD. However, the next time I went to use the software, it said my trial use had expired. I really only need to get back into the software one more time to burn the DVD.

Does anyone know how to reset a trial period or know how I can use it again? (The message I got said I needed to upgrade to Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006. However, this is not made anymore.)

So if anyone can help me out at all, I would be so appreciative. [Smile]

yeah that is such a headache when that happens. I hate time based trials, since I will almost always launch shareware once, then a month later get time to look at it, but now it's expired. [Mad]

I much prefer the X-number of times program will launch before it expires kind.
