Windows 7: Which one - Expiration date SIW or MS Winver

Which one - Expiration date SIW or MS Winver

Hi all

I have a little point of confusion with SIW and Winver for X-64 build 7077.

SIW reports expiry date as 6 June 2010

Winver reports expiration date as Mar 2nd 2010.

Who'se telling the truth and who'se the "Big fibber".

slmgr report as "Permanently activated" so that's no good as a 3rd check.

enc shots of SIW and winver.

I'm 100% confused now.

Cheers
jimbo

I believe that the 'Permanently Activated' bit is just slmgr stating that the key used to install the OS has been activated online/by phone. Permanent as in it won't need to be activated again, it has nothing to do with the expiry date IMO.

I have the same question Jimbo. The way I look at it, we will be running a different version anyway before those dates so it's irrelevant. RC1, RTM, etc.

Hi there.

was just curious as to where this information comes from -- I'm not interested in hacking the thing at all but it to me seems strange that an OS "control block" - or piece of data should yield 2 different results.

I'm surprised the "Mac Fanboys" haven't jumped on this yet -- run the same problem on Windows with the same data and get a different result each time".

Lucky the ATM doesn't variably display my balance according to the vagaries of the weather etc.

Cheers
