    Will RFC 1 expire on 30 Jan 2007?

    I would like to continue testing after 30 Jan 2007.

    Sincerely,

    I don't remember when it expires, but there's always the option to buy Vista. ;)

    I have purchased Vista.

    For testing purposes, I want to know when RFC 1 will expire. :)

    I hate to suggest the obvious, but why not just check the properties?

    RC1 will expire June 30, 2007. However, if you qualify you may receive a copy of Vista RC2 when RC1 expires.

    Actually, according to Microsoft and the actual system, it'll expire at the end of May.

    All the later Vista betas including both RC1 and RC2 expire either May 31 or June 1, 2007. Some parts of the Vista betas (MPEG codec is one) expired Dec 31, 2006. Some qualified testers from the beta program (not the CPP program) got a free copy of Vista RTM. If you haven't already got this you're not eligible.

    shhhh it will actually go until Aug due to the push back to Jan. That is what I have been told by some sources anyway.

    I have yet to see a Microsoft beta or evaluation product extend beyond the time when it says it will expire.
