Windows 7: Windows 7 Expiration Around the Corner for Build 7100

Windows 7 Expiration Around the Corner for Build 7100

The proverbial “free ride” is about to come to an end for pre-release copies of Microsoft’s latest iteration of the Windows client. Early adopters still running Windows 7 Build 7100 need to upgrade to the RTM Build 7600 version of the platform as soon as possible. This because Windows 7 RC Build 6.1.7100.0.090421-1700 is only one month away from its expiration deadline.

Just as it is the case for a variety of Microsoft testing development releases, Windows 7 RC Build 7100.0.090421-1700 is time-bombed and will enter its expiration period at the start of the coming month. By mid-2010, Windows 7 RC will be completely expired and will be treated in the same manner as a pirated copies of the operating system, offering customers experiences similar to platform versions that have been detected as non-genuine by the Windows Genuine Advantage antipiracy mechanism, according to Brandon LeBlanc, Windows Communications manager on the Windows Client Communications Team.

Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt. Type Winver and press ENTER when the box opens.

Or

Start then in the search box type Winver and press ENTER

Either of those wil open a dialog detailing you Windows version.

Typing slmgr.vbs -dlv (type this exactly as shown or copy-paste if unsure) in the search box in the Start Menu (at bottom where it says "Search Programs and Files") will give you a lot more detailed info.

Upload screenshot here if you wish.

What that says is you've got 152 days till your activation license expires.

That date would be 5 July 2010.

You can rearm once, which should (Probably, but not too sure) give you 30 extra days before the black screen and forced activation systems start up.

I would advise you to upgrade or do a fresh install to a retail version ASAP or at least before 5 July 2010.

Why would my license expiring? Never had that happed before. Are you saying this laptop had a trial Windows 7 OS on it when I bought it? It came with it on it from Ebay. Do I just need to go buy an upgrade? Does it have to be Windows 7 Pro, or can I upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium? I'm real confused.
