Evaluation Copy Expiring soon???? RRS feed

  • Question

  • After a recent reboot of WHS it has now started giving me the following message:

    Network Health: At Risk
    Upgrade your Windows Home Server
    27 Days remain before your evaluation copy of Windows Home Server expires

    If I click the gear icon for settings, it tells me that my "Evaluation Copy" expires on the 3/05/2007

    Anyboy else with this issue?

    Thanks

  • Others have had this problem when they install Windows Home Server and realize the date is off and change the date to a later date.  You may need to obtain another key off of Microsoft Connect and re-install Windows Home Server.

  • Unfortunately, there's no way I'm aware of to reset the expiration date.

  • Thanks for the answers.  I did change the date after first installing because it was out by a day.  I dont really want to reinstall the OS, any other options to reset the timer?
