Demo Mode only Installation - Autodesk Revit 2012

Why isn't it possible to install the product trial as a demo/viewer only? I have been through the installation 3 times, and the trial is now over and it wont change to Demo/viewer mode only.


Whenever I open it it says I need to activate or buy, changing to viewer/demo mode is NOT an option, also it is NOT an option during the installation.


Why can't I do this? Support staff from Autodesk told me its supposed to automatically go to viewer mode after the 30 day trial is up, but it doesnt. AND I can't find any way to get it into demo/viewer mode.
