Vista bug - 120 days activation period

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q2FybG9z?=, Feb 2, 2007.

  1. It seems that, apart from the discovery that the Upgrade version of Vista can
    be purchased and installed "fresh" with no previous OS present (see
    vista.general NG), it is also possible to extend the 30 day period for
    activation to 120 days without tampering with any of the OS files.

    Quite interesting.
    Don't know whether it has any practical use or not.

    This has been posted on Vista for about 2 months. Was useful in several
    circumstances before the retail versions were available. Can't remember if
    any would be useful now.
