I had posted on the Jriver forum about my 30 day trial period ending after trying to get MadVr working on my XP platform .
Jim's response here,
Download the latest build from jriver.com. There were a couple of builds recently that were wobbly with madVR.
Well, I down loaded the latest MC17 software and I have the 30 day trial has expired
nag. And Jim's response from the Interact forum is here "If you downloaded from jriver.com recently, you have MC18. If the trial has expired, there is no way to renew it."
So buyer beware that if you have problems while trying to resolve issues during the trial period, and you go over that time frame with no fix, you are SOL. MC18 has been reported to be full of bugs. My choice was to use the last version of 17 available at Jriver's web site. It's to bad that they will lose customers due to their inability to direct you to the registry entry where the start date is loaded for reference to the 30 days. I will certainly not pay for substandard software, or software that i cannot try based on my needs.
Such a simple fix that gets ignored.
