evaluation license expired before expected timeline RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I downloaded an evaluation copy of the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (Service Pack 1) and installed it on a virtual server. At the time of the installation, a pop-up message informed me that there were 119 days till the expiration for this evaluation. Two weeks later, it tells me that the license has expired. Is there a reason for this to happen?

    Thank you.
