Theres a command you can use to re-arm the 30 day trial in order to get up to 120 days.

I realise this fix has come a little late for you but i'll post anyway, it may help other users.

First, type in cmd.exe from your windows search box and open it up.

Net ensure that the command line is showing the following path:

Windows\System32

It should point to the correct directory by default but just in case it hasnt type in:

cd c:\Windows\System32\ then <return>

Next you need to access the command in this folder to re-arm the 30 day limitation, so type in:

cscript slmgr.vbs -rearm <return>

Then restart and you will have another 30 days. This script can be used up to a maximum of 120 days :D

Tip

Extend vista trial period


open command prompt and type<br />slmgr -rearm<br /><br />It will take a little while, but eventually a dialog will pop up telling you to reboot. Do so, and you'll see that the activation period has been reset to 30 days.<br /> <img src="image%7B0%7D%5B2%5D1.png" /> Note that if you want to get a full 120 days out of this tip that you need to use this command on day 29 or 30 of your trial mode. You can only use this command 3 times before Microsoft smacks you down.<br /><br />

Its Operating System, not Operative System! You can download Windows Vista 30...


Hi.

Windows Vista is a Microsoft Operative System, and cannot be downloaded, it can only be purchased, as it must be installed using a valid license number that can only be found on a genuine Microsoft certificate of authenticity.

The Operative system is the main resident software to manage computer resource and interface with the user.
Once installed, the operative system will allow the user to use a computer. A computer without an operative system cannot be used.

Other examples of modern operative systems are: Windows 98, windows XP, Windows 7, Mac OS, Linux.

Microsoft, that made Vista, does not sell the software directly. Vista can only be purchased from third party distributors. Here an example: purchase vista.

For this reasons you will not find any Vista download available from Microsoft.

Different versions of Vista where made available for download for testing purpose. This will allow you the download of the full Vista installer file, that must be recorded onto CD after downloading.
Here a download:Windows Vista Download - Softpedia.

The file available on the link above will still not be enough to install Vista if you do not have a valid version of Vista purchased or installed before on the computer. You will still be asked for a valid installation key during setup. If your computer is licensed for Vista, the key will be printer on a sticker located on the computer. The installation key is composed by 5 groups of five characters codes, like in this example: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.
If you have no valid installation key, then you will need to purchase a genuine Windows Vista.

If you decide to upgrade to Vista you can check if you computer can support Microsoft Vista by using the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor.

If you instead have Vista already installed, and you do not need Vista installer disk, but you only need to download Vista updates, you can use the following links:

Windows Vista home page

Microsoft Windows Update

Microsoft Download Center

I need the free permenent product key for my laptop type aspier 4736g,because always i open my microsoft word exel it request


Your computer probably came with a "30-day-free-trial" version of Microsoft Excel. So, after the 30 days, you have to PURCHASE a permanent product-key, if you want to keep using the software.

Remember, you clicked "I agree" the first time that you opened Excel, namely agreeing to accept the 30-day trial-period.

Or, uninstall Microsoft Office, and download *FREE* office-productivity software from http://www.openoffice.org
This software can read/write your existing Excel documents.

I instal Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition trial 1 month please tell me product key


If you are using the trial version, you should be able to use without entering any product key for 30 days.

Anyway, there is a way to use it for 120 days:
