using trial version for training

I have a solution that is going to be accessed by people in various offices. We want to have a training session at a retreat where all these people will be together. Every office has its own copy of FMP7, but they are installed on desktops, so it is not feasible for them to bring their computers to the retreat. Can I install the free trial version on the computers at the retreat and use it to remotely access our database for training? My concerns are: (1) is this legally OK (every user already has a legal copy back at the office) and (2) will it work--I just want to walk them through the operation of the database and show them how to access records, generate reports, send emails, etc. They won't be creating any new files. However, if they create or modify records in our existing files, will those be OK after the trial versions expire?

I don't see any legal problem with what you're suggesting. In fact, I think you'd be using the trial version for what it is there for. As far as your files are concerned, there's no problem there, either. You can create and modify records as normal with the trial version, and those files/records are perfectly normal FMP 7 files/records.

However (and I may be wrong about this, but) I seem to remember that networking does not work with the Trial Version. That's something you should look into.
