When you say it doesn't work, how doesn't it work? Do you get an error message? Does nothing happen? Does it load and report that it is out of date?
With the version I have I just take the current date and knock two years off it and it works ok (Release 2.4, DB version 06/07). I run it on it's own machine though so it doesn't affect other software.
What operating system does your computer run?
