Project 2000 Evaluation Version Expired After installing the Project 2000 Evaluation software, you may receive an error that the software is expired. To work around this problem, manually reset the FirstBoot registry entry to 1. To do this, follow these steps: NOTE: This workaround allows the Evaluation version to run successfully during the allotted time frame. Setting the FirstBoot setting back to 1 after the evaluation period has expired does not allow the Evaluation to work for an extended period of time.Click Start, and then click Run.In the Open box, type "regedit" (without the quotation marks).In the left pane of Registry Editor, navigate to and select the following subkey (folder): HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Office/9.0/MSProject/Options/General In the right pane, double-click the FirstBoot entry.In the "Value data" box, delete the "0" and type "1" (without the quotation marks), then click OK.On the Registry menu, click Exit. You can now run the Evaluation version properly during the allotted time frame.
