Windows 7: X-86 Expiration date ? 03 Mar 2010

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)
 
 

Starting on March 1, 2010 Windows 7 RC will begin shutting down every two hours. Your work will not be saved during the shutdown.


Yes, I got the 3 day warning on my last x86 RC test computer.

So I just Upgraded my last x86 computer from the RC Build to the Retail version with my TechNet subscription download.

That makes Seven different test computers Upgraded instead of clean install


Made sure I did a Windows Easy Transfer for a backup first. The Upgrade went smooth, No problems, everything worked as in previous version.

So now I won't have the ShutDown message on March 1st on any of my test computers

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".

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 Win7 beta page). http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/6486/59408975.th.png So my copy doesn't expire?

How do you show the expiration date?
I've seen many different expiration dates here lately for Windows 7, and the one that I've seemed to see the most is July 1st or August 1st... they show up about the same amount of times. However, I'd like to try and see what mine is... so it would be nice if someone could tell me how to get to...
