    hey guys, i'm trialling out Win7 Ultimate on a machine here that i'm thinking of upgrading to win7. the only problem is, it only lasts 3 days and when i do the re-arm trick it only lengthens it by another 3 days? this is the trick i've been using and they say it lasts 120 days? http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-7/extend-the-windows-7-trial-from-30-to-120-days/

    i need more than just 9 days to test out win7 fully before i make the upgrade move on this machine.

    what else can i do?

    thanks

    The default is 30 days is I remember right, when Windows is first installed.

    Also note that it is against site rules, to help with things like this, so you may not get much help.

    Thanks Frank. I was aware he had tested it back in April or May but didn't see the same question had been asked.

    Bonecrusher,

    I think you've had plenty of time to test it. If it's a valid Windows 7 then it will have a 30-day trial period.

    Closing thread.
