Yes, some..
the previous approach I took was to use a 3rd party library (cryptoLicensing) which gave me so~so results. Nothing truly problematic, but some inflexibility and other issues related to how I was/am using it.
The current approach I am using is a completely hand-rolled option which requires an online user account (on my domain) and the executable interacting with the server on a random basis. Don't want to give away too many details, but there is randomized 256bit encryption between the app and the server and the exe is obfuscated, with the main library 'testing' the others for their integrity during use. Not completely un-hackable, but even with knowledge of the code, I am not sure I could do it, even if it wasn't obfuscated.
So the basic time limit is enforced by the server side (to prevent users turning back their clocks and similar).
