Hi, I'm new to the forum, and I just discovered this excellent program from one of the links for panorama stitching software.

This is and excellent program, it's simple intuitive and very easy to use, and better yet, it does a great simple job without being bloat ware.

Unfortunately, I've only got 30 days to use this thing before the trial runs out. I'd be able to use it for longer, but the online registration has shut down because the company is out of buisess I guess.

Anyone know of a way to circumvent the online registration? Like I said, i'd like to keep on using the program. It creates excellent 360 degree .exe and html java programs, and does a decent job at stitching programs together, and best of all, it was simple and FREE!

If not Pixmaker Lite, can anyone recomend a great free program????

ps is there any sneaky way to go into regedit into the software registries? To manually reset the 30 day timer?

Thanks all

At one time I had an older version that didn't have a registration or expiration. Somewhere along the way it didn't get transferred, so the oldest version I have is about 3 years old and does require the registration. I guess I made the newer is better mistake and dumped the older version.

It is a nifty little program that I have had fun with for years. Most companies are clever enough to hide the expiration so you can't find it with a simple registry search. Before you got too deep into defeating the expiration make sure it will actually expire. I think I once got to day 286 on my 30 day trial of WinZip.

Most software will work fine if you just set your computer date back to before the expiration before you open the program. PixAround is simple freeware that probably doesn't have the sophistication to defeat that.
