Evaluation license expired early

Has anyone else experienced that their evaluation licenseexpired early? Mine was set to expire Jan 12, 2011, but when I tried to start Idea today, it said my license had expired.

If I revert back to 98.520, it works fine with the same eval license. Should I file a bug against 99.5?

I could be mistaken, but I believe the EAPs have a hard expiration date built in them to expire at (or near) the end of the year since IDEA is released at the end of the year. So you may be running into that. Filing a bug report against an EAP build for an expiring license would be pointless since the full version has been released. (Note that you do get a 30 day eval with the full release, but it does not restart with new builds.)

It is the released version that is failing on the expiry check, but my evaluation license is still valid until jan 12, 2011. I am only using the EAP because it is correctly working with the evaluation license.

Sorry, I guess I misunderstood your post. Since you asked about filing a bug against build 99.5, which was an EAP, I thought you were using that EAP rather than IDEA 10 (build 99.18) or  10.0.1 (build 99.32).

You are correct, my bad. I hadn't installed the release on this linux box. I thought I had them all on the latest. So, I had mistaken the last EAP as the release version. Thanks for being specific about the version numbers.

I am still having the issue now that I have installed 10.0.1 (99.32). Also, I would assume that I would get a new 30 day evaluation since this is the first time I have evaluated the final product (which is the expiration date shown on the splash screen).

I have a response from you in email, but I can't find it on this thread.

I have always been able to get a full eval license after switching from EAP to final. This is actually working under Win7. It appears to just be an issue under Linux. It is not a concern under windows because that is my personal license, but under linux and my work license, the eval is very important since company take time to go through finance and get the PO.
