Image Extending activation period of Vista to 120 days

This is not an illegal operation. If you want to extend the validation period in Windows Vista from 30 days to +30 and +30 and +30 untill a total of 120 days, simply run as administrator, press Windows + R (or go Start -> Run), type cmd, press Enter and run the following command:

Code:
slmgr -rearm


-> Reboot Windows for changed to make effect and woo hoo you have more 30 days :P

-> You can extend it up to 3 times, so making a total of 120 days.

-> Windows will not show 120 days, but 30 days, so do it only when your 30 days are gone.

:wink:

A tech support dude told me that when I called after screwing with a beta's validation/activation. Just verifying that it's not a crack or whatever.

Well, it could hardly be called a "crack" because it's using stuff shipping with Windows and no 3rd-party software.

Hmm yea I wouldn't call it a crack, but it's like a "hidden" feature. However I've made some searches and found out this is not illegal (at least some sites said it).

you can also change something in the registery and it wil be possible to extend it forever, is that illegal? no using 3rd party software, right?

I guess it is. I would call it a hack.

I wouldn't say it's a hack, given that the SkipRearm regvalue is fully documented by Microsoft:

MS wrote:
If you anticipate running Sysprep multiple times on a single computer, you must use the SkipRearm setting in the Microsoft-Windows-Security-Licensing-SLC component to postpone resetting the activation clock. Because you can reset the activation clock only three times, if you run Sysprep multiple times on a computer, you might run out of activation clock resets. Microsoft recommends that you use the SkipRearm setting if you plan on running Sysprep multiple times on a computer.

Microsoft got smarter with Windows Vista Activation. It is much harder to crack
