  • Hi, you can use windows update service which is running in the server by default without any registration. Simply install the server, go to start menu, select windows update and you are set.

  • Hi Javed. No registration is required to use this software. Simply install it and use it, and activate it when required.

    You will be required to activate it eventually, but you can do this any time within the activation grace period which the software will notify you of. You can even activate it immediately if you want.

    You don't require any correspondence from Microsoft to use this trial software, and you can start checking for updates immediately after installation. No registration is required for updates or use.
