Windows 7: 120 Days 'no key' RC/RTM usage?

120 Days 'no key' RC/RTM usage?

This just dawned on me (well, 4 seconds ago)....

If Windows 7 RC/RTM allows 3 rearms then that actually equals 120 days.

30 Days - Rearm(1) - 30 Days - Rearm(2) - 30 Days - Rearm(3) - 30 Days

Total = 120

It does seem a bit much so I could be wrong but that's currently how i see it.

Someone posted about how you can do 5 rearms by changing something in the registry or something. Hopefully when we get the real RTM we will be able to do that. Has anyone counted to see how many days from now Oct. 22 is?

actually the correct command would be
start -> cmd (right click - Run as Admin)
at popup type you should be in:
C:\windows\system32
type slmgr.vbs -rearm wait for popup to inform you it is done.
next type
slmgr.vbs -dlv wait for popup and see what you next expire date is.

Happy then EXIT out. If you do not use "Run As Admin" it will not work.

Now if you continue to "reset the -rearm switch via REGEDIT back to default. You get 1 last final rearm. = additional 30 days.= 150 days.
