this is my last question than I am done with my Plugin.
I want a window to pop up every tree minutes as long as the Plugin is not serialized.
Can you help me how can I make a funktion that calls dialog every three minutes? I am stuck with that, too.
I appreciate any help. Greetings, Holger

On a personal note, I think this is wasted energy.
Do you expect to have your plugin pirated in huge numbers? Just make a simple serial licensing and be done.
I find it kinda strange that some people spend more time developing a license protection than on the plugin itself.
Ask yourself if it is really worth the effort.

well...sure. I think a simple Serial licensing is fine....but I would like to make it possible to run it like in Demo mode. But if you say it is to complicated to do a timed dialog I will maybe leave that out and release without Demo.
Thank you anyways. Holger

I found out I could do the time()-function to read out the time the programm is open.

You can also set a timer for dialogs. So as long as your plugin displays a dialog you can run a timer.
Check SetTimer() and Timer() methods of the dialog classes.
