Hi, i've just installed the Office 2003 Beta and want to try it out, when i start it it says: Your beta Software has expired. Please upgrade or use the Add or Remove Programs Utility under Control Panel to remove the software from your computer now". It also limits the functions. So my question: Is there any way to get rid of these by hacking the exe or something?

Install and use it with the correct date?

You should use RTM builds for office not beta builds.

It should, I did not try this tool with an Office 2003 beta, but it worked fine for all the Office 2007 Betas :?

You should try CrackLock, I have had luck with alot of time-bomb betas and trialware programs too.

A similar piece of software is RunAsDate. You could try that, though they work in the same way as far as I know, so no guarantees on whether it will work.
