Laplink PCMover – Not such a great deal after all

Earlier this month we mentioned the Laplink is giving away a free full-version copy of their PCMover software.

Their website says

Get a free full-version copy of PCmover now and see if it’s right for you and your organization!

Offer valid until
October 15, 2005.

I received the following email this morning explaining that the serial number will only work until October 15, 2005. Apparently, this is only a time-bombed, full version trial of their software.

Good news! We have extended the expiration date of your PCmover serial number to October 15, 2005.

On behalf of Laplink, I want to apologize for any confusion regarding this offer and its expiration date. Our intent was to provide you with a full version copy of PCmover so you could determine if this product is useful to you and/or your business. However, we now realize that some people are confused about whether they need to obtain the product or to use it before the expiration date.

Because of this confusion, we have extended the expiration date. Your PCmover serial number will not work after October 15, 2005. Please complete your evaluation prior to that date.

Do someone a favor today! (Just forward this email so they can get their free copy of PCmover.)
