    I'm actually not sure what's going on here. The license details show

    RVS_GAOD.png

    which suggests a single instance one year license (see red arrow, that's basically what the 1-0365 is supposed to mean). It's not clear why the expiration date is basically indicating a short trial. Perhaps something needs to be addressed in the licensing database, but that's just a guess.

    I'd wait for either RVS or GOTD to comment directly before firmly asserting that it's basically a trial copy download (which I agree is what is indicated by that expiration date).

    ssj100,

    Have you tried looking on the vendor site support FAQ. Quoting from there:

    I'm uncertain of what you are getting at. Yes, there's a free version available. Anyone can download it at any time. We're focused on the current Home Lux offer on GOTD.

    I took advantage of the last GAOTD offer of Returnil 2008 Premium.

    Not sure whether to download and install this latest offer as my 2008 license is good until Jan. 2010.

    Has anyone been able to confirm whether this is a 45 day offer or a one year license?

    If it's only 45 days I will not install it. If it is a one year license then I'm not sure if I will or not. Seems like a lot of people are still using the 2008 version because of problems with the 2010 version.

    Guidance please.....................

    Do you actually need a license for the free version?

    If the free version is really "free", why would you have to go to GAOTD to get it? Couldn't you just go to Returnil's site to get it? Also, couldn't you just continuously upgrade the free version when updates become available, or do you have to get a new license every year?

    Thanks

    Some issue here
    License provided by GOTD expires on 2009/11/29 (2010 Lux ed).

    But the license provided last year for RETURNIL 2008 premium by GOTD lasts 1 year.

    So is it possible to know what happens?
    Maybe servers are overloaded?

    Thank you in advance

    Cheers

    The offer for today is for the commercial version and must be downloaded from GOATD the free version is available from the Returnil website. Both versions do need registration as far as I'm aware please make sure you go to the GOATD website for the commercial free version. The differences between the builds are available from the Returnil website
    also please note that the offer has just 10 hours 29 minutes left to run

    EXE from GAOTD and Returnil are equal (MD5 hash)
    (idd all EXE from returnil are same -> Free, Home Lux, Enterprise)
    so only the key makes the difference.

    Hey Nick,

    I'm still a little confused.
    Are you saying that the GAOTD offer supplies a registration code that you can use to either register the free version for two years, or the paid version for around 45 days?

    Thanks

    The build which is given away by GOATD can be registered for free by just inputing your name and email in the box. However if you wish to register the commercial version as outlined in todays offer you will then need to input not only your name and email but will also need to input the registration key in the box as well which comes with the download file. :)
    by registering the free build that's coming up as 2 years but for the commercial offer that is only showing for 45 days o_O which doesn't make sense and hopefully one of the Returnil team will be able to clarify this point

    Hey Nick,

    I'm not really sure I'm even going to install it.

    As I said, I use the 2008 version which is licensed until Jan. 2010, and if this 2010 version is only a trial version for 45 days, I will probably just stick with my 2008 version.

    I realize that at some point I will have to switch over to the 2010 version but hopefully not real soon.

    Now, if this latest GAOTD offer would have been a full year license then I may have been tempted.

    Thanks again for your help.
