Captivate has such a feature built into it.

I forgot about that.
I came up with the following solution.
My courses contain on avarage 50-60 small captivate (each item in the course has a seperate Overview, Show Me, Let Me and Test Me version of the item). Obviously I don't want to republish those files over and over again with a new expiry date, everytime I have to create a CD (I do that on request).
So I have created a launch file that only contains a start button. The Start button links to the first html file (with four swfs created in Captivate).
I only have to republish the launch file with a new expiry date.
Now that I've got a solution for that, is there any way to format the expiry date message?
It comes up with the Captivate 4 logo, but honestly, it is not important to the enduser in which programme the course has been created, is it? Captivate will not say anything to them.
Sorry, no way to control any of that I'm aware of. It would be nice to have more control over that, no?

I suppose if you own Flash and you know how to use it, you might pull the Captivate into Flash and edit from there.
Helpful and Handy Links
I know this is an old thread but I have a similar issue in which I need to expire the content in 90 days from the first viewing. I have an installer that can wrap around the Captivate content (.exe) and then delete itself upon successful installation. The problem is I would need to recreate the content every day or two because of the "static date" expiry within Captivate. Also, can any of the variables within Captivate accomplish this?
BTW, I've posted this at this thread a few minutes ago before stumbling here:http://forums.adobe.com/thread/789949
Thank you for any help you can give me.
