Why didn't the WinRAR People Enforce the 30-day Trial Limit?

    Just wondering. You can download it and have the whole thing for free, except for that window that pops up after the 30-day trial.

    The only reason to pay for it is to get away from that annoying message that pops upp every time you use it. So it's not worth buying it.

    They can't enforce the limit because you'd be left with tonnes of RARs that you're unable to access. A bit nasty that, so it's not done. Same for WinZip, except that was a few years ago now.

    It would just force the people to download the crack.

    Shareware that enforce limits are worthless anyways, they really think that you would buy that crap instead of cracking it? That's so damn fun
