Windows 7: What's your date of Windows 7 installation?


12 Jul 2012   #11

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

Not at my personal desktop but it would be the date I built the system as it would be on every computer I've ever made for myself. I've never had to reformat and reinstall windows on any machine for any reason as long as it was an actively used machine which can last anywhere from 3-5 years or so. Then they move over to being a secondary/guest/experimental machine for another few years.

My secondary machines get all kinds of experimental things installed on them and don't really count (i.e. curently is my win8 test machine), but my main machines have never needed to be reformatted "just because"

Most of us don't run from within \windows\System32.

go to a command prompt, carry out following one-liner:
wmic os get /all /format:list > %userprofile%\desktop\osinfo.txt

will put install date and much more in osinfo.txt on your laptop.

You will notice that the date/time format is a little unusual.
Thanks for the above but it didn't work, just kept coming back to the command prompt. I carefully copied and pasted the line into Wordpad first to make sure I got spaces where they should be. I Typed this:
wmic[space]os[space]get[space]/all[space]/format:list[space]>[space]%userprofile%[space]\desktop\osinfo.txt
Earlier I had downloaded SystemInfo.exe form Brinks tutorial on the subject so that provided all the info I needed.
Thanks you anyway.

run as administrator.

That wmic command never fails!

wmic[space]os[space]get[space]/all[space]/format:list[space]>[space]%userprofile%[space]\desktop\osinfo.txt

that space is wrong. Always easiest to simply copy with Ctrl + C and then paste into the command shell using:
RIGHT-CLICK

same technique works in PowerShell.

You can check this out by entering:
Code:
systeminfo
into cmd.exe.

There'll be Original Install Date.

As long as my system is running OK, I don't bother when I first install it. The moment my system starts behaving funny, I will either restore, or reinstall everything, dependent on whether I have a restore partition or not.

On my present laptop, which I got last july, I restored it on this 1st of july as I was getting some problems with some software.

Funnily the original install did not get validated by Microsoft, but after restored with restore partition, it got validated.
