Odd Trial Behavior

I have downloaded WindowBlinds from the Stardock site 3 times now to a clean image each time so no remnants remained and first, the trial stays at 30 days and has for days; does the trial just end with no warning? There are also themes that will not download, I am using Azurlight by bleumart but any others by him will not download, also a few by LightStar and, unbelievably, those mostly red like Hi Klass Special Edition. The only options I get are open with Winrar archiver, open with Internet Explorer or Browse but even going to C>Windowblinds does nothing. I also don't seem to be able to edit, all that option does is take me to the program download page at Stardock, I assume edit is tied to purchase, is that correct?. Not exactly a WindowBlinds issue but there are 561 pages of themes at WinCustomize that can only be fast forwarded through one at a time, am I missing seeing something, thankyou   Edit: Windows 7 64, Windowblinds 8.01

Bartmole...

The Windowblinds trial is limited to 30 days.  Deleting and re-installing will not extend the time [however it may confuse the displayed time].. it will be 30 days from the first install/trial.

Once the program trial has ended the system will not recognize a Windowblind download as a wba file but more likely as a standard archive file accessible via an associated program such as winrar.

Correct and full functionality is available via subsequent product purchase...

Thankyou for the response, the trial has been on the computer (all 3 trials) for about a week but still shows 30 days left, should it not count down to expiration. Also, downloading and installing most themes works fine but some will not download (all free). Why would one by the same designer install but no other by him?

It could be that those skins are actually in zipped folders because they are bundled with other components (walls, etc)?
