ROsborn 03 Feb 2004 I bought the 60-Day trial version of VS.NET direct from MS about 6 months ago. I installed it right away and played with it all of 2 days. I then found myself having to work on another project using VS version 6. I never really used the trial version much at all. I would be happy to prove this is there was some sort of usage counter or something Well, now that the other project is complete, I'd really like to start learning about VS.NET. I am a long-time MS customer (since Windows 286 days, and back to Visual Basic version 1.0) and would really appreciate a fresh 60 days. I'm not trying to pull one over, I truly only used it a couple of times. A few times it came up when a program crashed (for debugging), but I only used it for actual programming about 3 times Yes, I know what you'll say, "that's why we limit it to 60 days". Anything you can do would be nice. I'm really looking forward to trying it. Thanks.
