Normally after 45 days of use Alpha Five Version 5 displays a message to activate the software. This is requested by you through the program and is tied to the computer name. After it is requested we send back an activation key, and it is then entered into the program.

In situations where the system date is not U.S., then premature activation requests will happen when launching the product. To work around this you must change the system date to US format, start the program enter in the license number, and then request an activation key. Once you get the activation key, enter it in and then you can change back to your date format of choice.

Please be advised if you are just evaluating the software, or you think you might want to take advantage of the 30 day money back guarantee policy, then retain the US date style format until you are done evaluating the product.
