nt evaulation license?

By Seadogs ·
We are getting an error from an NT box saying that the evaluation period has expired and the system will shut down in one hour. We've double checked the license and it is the original one that came with the box. (I thought perhaps I had accidentally used the number for a training version I had used on a pc for some classes that had a 90 day limit, but the license is the correct full version). Is there somewhere in the registry that turns this on and off? We're hoping not to have to reinstall NT if possible. Thanks for the help

Hi!

I also had this problem with Proxy Server Trial License. I thought when I buy the license three days before the Trial License will reach the 30 days and I'll enter the new key in time, it will run. But it doesn't. A simple reboot solves this problem.
Did you try a reboot?? I mean, perhaps does this software belive to have still the old license entered....

Inform me how you cleared this problem. (perhaps the reboot helped)

Best reguards

We tried to change the key in the registry...it was a valid normal key btw. Nothing seemed to help so we ended up rebuilding the pc from scratch.

I just encountered the same problem. I believe that it happened because a demo disk was used at some point to install a component or service. I was unable to resolve the issue without reinstalling windows. Every time you reboot you will get an hour of uptime. Use this to make note of your shares and to back up files. If you don't have a BDC, whip one up on another PC to hold the user accounts while you rebuild your server. I wish I had an easier answer.
