Just my 2p as someone who has had to deal with this sort of thing... Time based evalutaion programs are too easy to trick, even the best can be thrown by fiddling the clock. Even if you somehow find a way to work around this, it's possible to crack it. What is much harder to deal with is an evalutaion that refuses to work unless it can contact a central server, and the server records how long the evaluation has been running. But that requires hairy amounts of resources, opens you up to accusations of writing spyware and makes users feel like tey're being treated like criminals (I present the court with Exhibit A: WindowsXP product activation)
