    Am I obligated to buy after 30 Dreamweaver Trial is up?

    hrcdrc
      I am downloading a free 30 day trial version of Dreamweaver, but I'm not going to have the money to actually buy it after 30 days. Seriously, what happens when my 30 day trial becomes expired, does that mean I'm obligated to buy the program? What will happen to my computer after 30 days, will I have to uninstall the trial version? Will I be harassed if I decide not to buy it? Not to be paranoid or anything, I just wanna know what happens if you decide not to buy the program after 30 days. Anyone know?

          No, not at all. You just won't be able to launch it after the Trial has
          expired.

          Any website files created during the Trial period will still exist on your
          hard drive and will still work. However, you won't be able to edit them with
          the expired Trial version of DW.

          What will happen to my computer after 30 days, will I have to
          > uninstall the trial version?

          OPTION 1 Leave the expired Trial version on your computer and enter a serial
          number at a later date. After the Trial expires, the software won't launch.
          You may get a splash screen but it'll ask for a valid serial no every time.
          If none is provided, it closes.

          OPTION 2 Uninstall the Trial

          No. Nothing malicious will occur.

          >Not to be paranoid or anything, I just wanna know what happens if you
          > decide not to buy the program after 30 days. Anyone know?

          Refer above.

            It wouldn't be much of a "trial" if you had no choice and were forced to buy
            the software, right? :-)

            You don't really think a company like Adobe would attack your computer with
            a virus to punish you for not buying Dreamweaver??

            See John's response.
