Editors' review

This nifty freeware executable fools an application into accepting a date and time you specify. RunAsDate's simple dialog-sized interface uses pull-downs, browse windows, and pop-up calendars to make it super easy to operate. This application doesn't require extensive user knowledge, but be warned that some programs may fail after using RunAsDate.

The good news is that this app performs its function well. You merely browse to find the program you want to run, and set the date and time very quickly with the pop-up calendar. For select programs you can add needed parameters through the one-line text box. Press Run and your program starts believing your preset date is the true date. RunAsDate also includes command line functions for users who need to use the app in batch files.

Unfortunately, some applications are written to ensure users do not back their system to get around time limits. We found those programs would fail if RunAsDate was utilized. However, most wouldn't run at all if the system date wasn't within the expected range.

As an executable, RunAsDate fits well on your USB toolkit. We can easily recommend it for those occasional times you need to pass a false date to an application.
