Windows 7 RC expiration prompts begin in two weeks
« on: 02. February 2010., 17:16:38 »


Microsoft has issued a reminder that in two weeks Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC) users will begin receiving expiration notifications: http://edge.technet.com/Media/reminder-Windows-7-RC-expiration-coming-soon/

Windows 7 RC does not expire until 1 June 2010 but from February 15 users will begin seeing expiration notifications in the task bar one time per day and then a Notification Wizard one time every four hours and then one time every hour: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971767
After March 1 Windows 7 RC users will experience shut-downs every two hours. A brief summary of the events can be found below:

Effective February 15, 2010, the expiration notification process begins:

    * Windows 7 RC users receive an expiration notification in the task bar one time per day.
    * Windows 7 RC users are presented with the Notification Wizard one time every four hours and then one time every hour.

Effective March 1, 2010, Windows 7 RC enters the next phase of expiration:

    * Expiration notifications in the task bar continue.
    * Computers that are running Windows 7 RC restart every two hours.

Effective June 1, 2010, Windows 7 RC expires:

    * Windows starts to a black desktop.
    * Windows 7 RC users are presented with a Windows Activation screen. The screen states that the Windows that you are running is not genuine.
    * Computers that are running Windows 7 RC restart every two hours.
