Expression Blend 3 RC Trial Expired RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm not able to look at the new features of Blend 3 RC as it immediately said the trial had expired when I ran it.  This must be to do with the fact that I have had a blend 2 trial previously.  I currently do run blend 2 fully registered.

    Is there any way I can get into the blend 3 RC?

    Thanks in advance,
    John.

  • Hi Adrian,

    I've actually managed to sort the problem out since you replied.  I can't tell you what the solution is exactly but basically I had uninstalled Blend 3 RC, and then uninstalled Silverlight 2 and the Silverlight 2 SDK (which was prompted by the install of Silverlight 3).

    After your reply I decided to try and install Blend 3 RC again, and now I can get in (it shows 54 days remaining).

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Regards,
    John.

  • Hi John,

    I am really sorry to hear that you are having errors with the Blend RC. Could you answer to a few questions that may help us investigate the issue?

    Were you able to run Blend 3 at least once after you installed it? Did you adjust the computer's clock/date since you installed Blend 3? If your BIOS battery is weak, the system clock may reset by itself. Changes to the system date may cause product expiration.

    Thanks,
    Adrian
