    Try before you buy
    A 30 day trial of HCA Plus is available for download so you can evaluate HCA before you purchase. With a time limited trial, you get a copy of the software that is fully functional - no program actions are disabled. After you download and install you can use the evaluation for 30 days. At the end of that time you will be unable to run the program. The software used to time limit the executable is very sensitive to attempts to bypass its security. If you change the date on your computer after you install HCA you may not get the full 30 day trial period.

    On Windows Vista or Windows 7, the first time you execute HCA after you complete the install you must do it as an administrator in order to set the time lock. Right-click on "HCA" after you browse to it from the Start button and select "Run as Administrator". A good way to start with HCA is to look at the sample file "MyHome.HCA" installed in the Samples sub-folder of the HCA folder in your Documents area.

    A fully functional version of HCA 11 Plus can be downloaded here (zip file).

    Installation is easy and the program works great, but rather difficult to get your rooms and modules where you want them. The program could havee been a lot simpiler to use.
