[quote:k2kno51p][i:k2kno51p]As for the question about the offline trial extension. I was curious, when you create an offline extension on the site, how does the program on the customers desktop know said extension exists, since it would presumably be offline and can't communicate with the server?[/i:k2kno51p][/quote:k2kno51p]
You have to send the offline trial extension to the user somehow (email, morse code, smoke signal, etc.). Then, on the client side, the trial extension details are encrypted in that long text block.
