PWB v2 unregistered version:
The unregistered version of PWB v2 has two limitations. A hard coded 10 minute activity timer, and "<unregistered>" appears in the title bar. Please refer to the licensing page for license information. The registration license number will only be good for the length of time you have purchased, once this time expires PWB will revert back to unregistered and a new license number will need to be obtained.
