The OpenVMS Freeware V3.0 CD-ROM contains a software expiration mechanism
embedded in the freeware menu system. When the software expires, it
will return the following fatal error when the freeware menu is invoked:
Loading freeware Menu System...
*** Your INTOUCH license has expired. ***
To suppress this license expiration and thus re-enable use of the
freeware menu subsystem, please set up the following two DCL symbols
immediately prior to invoking the freeware menu command procedure:
$ INT_ID1 := 51330359
$ INT_ID2 := 65029501
As an alternative to using the menu, you can directly access the
directories containing the desired freeware software on the freeware
CD-ROM, entirely bypassing the use of the menu. For example, to
access the directory containing OpenVMS logos, entire the command:
$ DIRECTORY DISK$FREEWAREV30:[VMS_LOGO]
In each directory, you will find the file FREEWARE_README.TXT, a file
that describes the contents of the particular directory.
You will also find listings of the contents of the freeware CD-ROM
in the file
The expiration mechanism was unplanned and we apologize for any
inconvenience this has caused. This product expiration will be
disabled in the upcoming V4.0 release of the OpenVMS Freeware CD-ROM.
