Windows 7: Time Is Running Out for Windows 7 RC Build 7100

23 Apr 2010   #1

Time Is Running Out for Windows 7 RC Build 7100

Time is running out for the Release Candidate of Windows 7. Come April 23, 2010, Build 7100 will be just one month and seven days away from the last stage of expiration, which will end up rendering the operating system useless. Starting on June 1, 2010, Windows 7 RC will behave in the same manner as any non-genuine copy of Windows released after Windows XP. Essentially, Microsoft will not differentiate in any way between Windows 7 RC and a pirated version of the platform.

Here is the experience that users will come across if they insist on running Windows 7 RC after June 1: “Windows starts to a black desktop. Windows 7 RC users are presented with a Windows Activation screen. The screen states that the Windows that you are running is not genuine. Computers that are running Windows 7 RC restart every two hours,” Microsoft revealed.
