which is as follows:
The max date for evaluation period is upto 1st June 2010. you can see it by typing slmgr.vbs -dlv at "Run.." command or at search box. this is as under:



as you can see there is 3 rearm count left on that. if rearm is availed then you will again extend the evaluation period for 30 days over 1st March 2010 and 3 rearm means 3 x 30 = 90 days, that means on first rearm extension you will get 1st April 2010, on 2nd rearm-till 1st May 2010 and on 3rd rearm you will get an evaluation expiry date on 1st June 2010.

rearm tool : slmgr.vbs -rearm
Thank you. In this my is also 02-06-2010.
The reason I want to know about expiredate is, that I want Windows 7 in my own language (danish), and therefore I can't get it (I think) at the release-day of the english version.

What would happen if you re-armed it now before the March 2010 date.
Would it change the March 2010 date to April 2010 ?
