The quick answer is "Don't use an evaluation build".

You have 3 main options:
1) become a sponsor and get builds of the latest code
2) use the free builds that are several years old
3) build pymol from source.  There are instructions on for building on windows, mac, and  linux,
and solutions to many common problems you might face can be found by
searching the archives of the list (linked to at the bottom of each
message).  If you run into any problems not discussed in the wiki or
archives, people around here are nice and will likely help you out.
