Which files do I need?
If you are installing this program for the first time, you will need the full installation plus any applicable update, should it be newer than the full installation.
If you already have the GSiteCrawler installed, you'll only need to install the update. If you want to use the cutting-edge, newest version, you can use the beta-version. The program checks for updates on start and will inform you of matching updates. If you have the beta-version intsalled, it will also inform you of all new beta-version updates.
If you have a large website the MSDE / SQL-Server version might be for you. You'll need a normal full installation plus the update for the SQL-version. This version installs as a separate executable file (GSiteCrawler2.exe) and requires some work before you can use it. I recommend starting with the default version and possibly upgrading to the SQL-version if size is an issue.
Why do the installations expire?
Since new versions contain all sorts of fixes (and of course new functions) I prefer to have as many of the users as possible working with them. The expiration dates are usually well within the usual update-cycle.
