    Hello,

    I was wondering how strict the 30 day trial period is for MVC?  Is it in anyway enforced by the included DLL to prevent use after 30 days?

    I only ask, as I set it up in my dev environment earlier this week, got it working in one of my projects, but now I won't have time to work on any of my projects until January.

    As I won't be using it over the Christmas period, it seems I won't get to actually trial this product if it prevents execution after 30 days.  (30 days seems a bit odd for a development library to be honest anyway.. couldn't you just limit it to only work on localhost, and not via any other domain / remote client ip?).


    Thanks,
    Shannon.

    Hello Shannon,

    The trial version of Kendo UI does not have a time bomb which prevents its usage when the 30 day trial lapses. However, if you continue to use the trial after this period expires, you directly violate the trial EULA that you agreed with when you downloaded it.

    Therefore, when the trial evaluation timeframe ends you should either make a purchase or continue using the Kendo UI Web GPLv3 version (if applicable for your project).

    Kind regards,

    Hi Sebastian,

    Thanks for the feedback.  I guess I'll drop Kendo UI from the project I was interested in looking at it in for now then, GPLv3 isn't really an option either as my project isn't open source.

    To test the Kendo UI (mobile side of it at least), I'm going to evaluate your Icenium offering - as that does look quiet interesting for the mobile side of the project I'm working on.  Plus the subscription based payment after the trial phase is much more attractive for a low-budget solo developer like myself.

    Thanks,
    Shannon.
