WHS 120 Day Evaluation Version RRS feed

  • Question

  • A client of mine has finally got around to having a home server.  I have installed the 120 evaluation version to show him the benefits.  Unfortunately, I cannot find where to obtain a evaluation key as the installed software is currently showing 29 days left.

    Can someone let me know how to obtain a key from Microsoft to allow the full 120 days?

  • If you downloaded the evaluation software from Microsoft, you can obtain a key by registering on Connect. If you got the software from Microsoft on physical media, you received a product key (on a yellow sticker) with the software.

  • I have gone to the "Connect" link mentioned in your reply, but I still don't know where to go from there! I have signed in via my Microsoft Live id but yet I have failed to see any mention of registering anything, anywhere!

    Once you go to the WHS Connect site, you should see a link on the left side that says Product Keys.
