When the evaluation period is over constructors of classes included in the component will start throwing an exception. The exception will show the message about the end of the trial period.

For example the Rebex SFTP will start throwing a SftpException with following message:

Trial version of Rebex SFTP for .NET has expired. Please consider registering at http://www.rebex.net/.

When it happens you'll have to replace the trial dll with the full ones.

Evaluation period lasted 12 hours and then I got the message. Only used it twice over that time. Seriously, what kind of evaluation period is that!

This is strange. Evaluation key is valid for 30 days from the time of the download of the trial package from our web. If you need to test longer than 30 days, just generate a new trial key, at http://www.rebex.net/support/trial-key.aspx This will give you 30 more days.
