Windows 7: No expiration date?

No expiration date?

Somebody else posted something like this, but I didn't use a hack. I got my key just like everyone else (the drop-down list on the Windows 7 beta page).



So my copy doesn't expire?

Open the start menu and type winver and that will show you your expiry date.

If you didn't use a hack (and no-one should) then it will expire. 7000 will expire 1st August, 7057 onwards will expire March 2010. It's not the keys that determine the expiry date, it's coded into the software itself.

Also: hacks do not work, they just mask certain aspects of the OS & play with the registry/files e.g. remove the watermark.

Yeah, mine expires August 1st. Thanks for the winver tip, Grim. I'll give you rep for it.

Since I plan on keeping this as long as I can, can you tell me where I can get a copy of build 7077 and what the improvements are?
