    Extending life of 60 day evaluation (MS Project 2002 Standard)

    I installed a 60 day evaluation copy of MS Project 2002. I was then involved in extensive travel and other undertakings that precluded completing my evaluation. I removed the evaluation copy to preserve the time. Now when I try to reinstall the evaluation copy, the install completes, but when I run Project I get a message that the 60 days has expired and the program closes. Is there a way to restart the 60 day counter? Perhaps a registry hack?

    Jim,

    I do not think asking for a registry hack is appropriate in this forum. Why not contact microsoft and explain your situation to see if they can give you the key to extend the expiration date. I have done this succesfully with other software packages where I did not have enough time to evaluate them.
    Regards,

    I agree, but can not find a MS phone number for Project support. Any thoughts.

    You can get Project phone support numbers from here. But I would suggest you get an eval copy of Project 2003. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
