Activating Windows 7 Enterprise

Hi,

I downloaded the trial version of Windows 7 Enterprise. I read somewhere that you have 10 days to activate your copy after which it will shutdown every hour.

I'm a bit embarrassed to say, but how do you activate it? I did receive some kind of an activation message flash quickly on the screen, but nothing since I installed it yesterday.

Thank you

Hi again sandymay if you press the Win key + Puase/Break (the win key is the one that looks a bit like a flag) it will bring up the system info. If you scroll down you will see the product key, next to it it will say "Not activated activate now" (or similar) go ahead and click it.

To activate type in
start slmgr.vbs -ato

or if you prefer

Now that the businness is completed.
