When TimeToStart is first installed, it will run as a demo. The only change from the purchased version is that every 00 or 30 seconds, the timer will display "DEMO" briefly.
When you purchase the program, you will be provided an unlock code or "key code", that is specially keyed to your user name.
Be sure to print out and save your unlock information. TimeToStart stores this information in the Windows registry, and if you reinstall Windows, or move the program to another computer, you will have to unlock it again. Also, the saved unlock information is keyed to your computer name in the file sharing setup, so making certain uncommon changes to your Windows settings may require you to unlock again. There may be a fee charged to look up and resupply your original unlock information!
