How to manually extend the evaluation period


When the initial 60-day evaluation period nears its end, you can run the Slmgr.vbs script to reset the evaluation period. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Command Prompt.  (ensure that you run as Administrator)
2. Type slmgr.vbs -dli, and then press ENTER to check the current status of your evaluation period.
3. To reset the evaluation period, type slmgr.vbs –rearm, and then press ENTER.
4. Restart the computer.

    But, Susan, that is not what everyone wants to do. The really want to know how to extend the evaluation period after the evaluation period expires. Nicht wahr?
