The System Info for Windows tool will also show that as well as the expiration date seen when clicking the "operating system" item.



That's a bit more detailed over the command prompt option.

Doesn't it appear to be two years from the date of install?

2010 is next year not 2yrs. from now. The 7000 builds are history by 8/1/2009 for a start with the only one that might extend past the 6/1/2010 seen on the 7077 build would the RC or last RTM before Retail/oem being extended there until 2011.

Once 7 sees it's general release I doubt too many would be trying activate a copy to last until the following year to start with. For anything pre RC you need to look at the actual expiration with a system information tool or by the command prompt option shudau pointed out.

As we've discovered, there are 2 different expiry dates. 1 shown in 'winver' & the other from running 'slmgr.vbs /dlv' from command pronpt.

I have a theory about the differing dates.

The 1 in 'winver' could apply to the date at which Windows starts running with reduced functionality. The 1 in 'slmgr.vbs /dlv' (in command prompt) might apply to the date at which the OS becomes completely unuseable.

Just a though
