Is there a utility for VB.NET that will let me copy protect my VB.NET trialware?

Is there a utility for VB.NET that will enable me to copy protect and time limit my new VB.NET trialware/shareware application? I can't seem to find anything anywhere. Thanks!
Since Visual Basic .NET can handle calling ActiveX controls with aplomb, there's nothing stopping you from using one of the existing COM-based controls. I haven't seen any trialware components written in .NET yet. Two controls you can look are The Armadillo Software Protection System and ActiveLock. Please note that I have not used either program.
