Each time you open AdminStudio while you are in evaluation mode, this dialog box shows you how many days are left in your trial period.

See About AdminStudio Limited Edition for LANDesk Management Suite.

Evaluating AdminStudio’s Microsoft App-V Support
While evaluating the AdminStudio Enterprise Edition client tools, you will be able to convert a Windows Installer package to an App-V application using the Automated Application Converter, Conversion Wizard, Repackager, and the InstallShield App-V Assistant. However, an App-V application built using an evaluation version of AdminStudio will display the following message every time it is launched:
Evaluation Version Message
After purchasing the AdminStudio Application Virtualization, you will be able to remove this message by rebuilding the App-V application.
Evaluating the Automated Application Converter “Multiple Application” Option
The “multiple application” option of Automated Application Converter is only available when you purchase Application Virtualization with AdminStudio Enterprise Edition.
Note • If you purchase Application Virtualization with AdminStudio Standard or Professional Editions, you will only be able to convert one package at a time, using one virtual machine.
When using an evaluation version of AdminStudio, you will be able to use Automated Application Converter to convert a directory full of Windows Installer packages into individual virtual packages, but the conversion will be limited to three packages per run, using only one virtual machine. Therefore, only the first three packages that Automated Application Converter encounters will be converted to virtual applications.
