Activate Evaluation Copy of WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have sucessfully installed WHS Evaluation version.  I realise I have to activate the software within 30 days to benefit from the full 120 day evaluation period.  I tried to activate by Telephone.. typing the nine groups of six characters into my phone (UK Based).  After three attempts I had no luck there was apparently an error.  After spending best part of an hour scouring the MS site I called a nice chap in India... unfortunately he couldn't help.

    So far the WHS is totally brilliant and one of MS's best kept secrets... is there an on-line activation process or a decent UK phone number which will let me speak to a human who could help?

    I am sure I cannot be the only one who has had this problem!

    Any help gratefully received.

    best regards

  • Hi James,
    if you did not get a trial key in the past (on the download site was written, how to get one), you will not be longer able to get one. Microsoft just changed the trial versions to remain running only 30 days (without key).
    Best greetings from Germany
