How can I activate a beta version of Windows Vista?

Post by WindowsBA »

I could only use Longhorn 5840 for 14 days, after that it stopped working because it was not activated. I tried to activate it, but Windows Loader didn't work at all! Could anyone help me, please! :(

Not. Unfortunately, this is almost impossible in the pre-reset and post-reset buildings. But it is a way to skip the activation logon, (I think from beta 2 and further.) By: on the page where it is "Retype Your Product Key" or something similar, you have a more button in Down "read online Privacy". When you press the button, the Internet Explorer will open. And in the searching bar, you will Need to Type "C:". The File Explorer Will Open, and You Will Need To Go In Windows Folder, and You Will Need To Find "Explorer.exe". And you can use Windows (With Timebomb Triggred.)
But, there has 2 problems. What are: 1 - You have to do this every time you start the system. And 2 - Control Panel, System Properties and a lot of Windows Features Will Not Work ...

This assembly of the RTM branch, the keys from the final assembly are suitable for it, well, it is easily activated by the loader. And you are saying something wrong, because the trial period is 30 days, not 14. The last build with a 14-day trial period is 5600
