Notes

- Function will return PCGI_ERROR_DEMO_MODE_DISABLED code in case:

b) DEMO mode is enabled but both date and fixed date limitations are not enabled.

- By default, standard license and evaluation checks are done during application startup only. Use this function to prevent user from gaining additional evaluation time by keeping application running forever in memory and never shutting computer down.
