    Question Trial period implementation

    Is there a Windows registry counterpart for Symbian?
    A Windows application would normally store trial period related data in the system registry, that way, uninstalling and reinstalling the application wouldn't reset the trial period data.
    How can this be achieved in Symbian?

    Some people used to use the system.ini file for this, anyway Not sure if it is anywhere in readable place anymore. All and all, no official way, thus no-public or anyway documented API's for this. Which means that you need to make your own way on doing it.

    Re: Trial period implementation

    Of course, an application might create a file somewhere and store some trial data in it, but since private folder is wiped by uninstaller, where to create such file?
    And, besides, how doesnot such file creation conflict with Symbian Signed requirement about not leaving files after program uninstall?..
