Evaluation Reminder

Evaluation reminder enables the protected program to regularly check the Key to determine whether or not it is running in the evaluation mode.

Interval

Specify the time interval (1-31) in hours or minutes in which the protected program detects the Key. If the Key returns the license mode as evaluation or unregistered, it triggers the protected program to perform an evaluation reminder. The reminder can be an action, a popup dialog, or a target object that you specify.

         Continue the protected program. The protected program continues to run.
