Is it possible to in place upgrade the 2008 r2 evaluation version to a full
licensed version?

according to the download site: "you will need to uninstall the evaluation
software and reinstall a fully-licensed version of Windows Server 2008 R2."

yet elsewhere I see that Windows Server 2008 R2 RC to Windows Server 2008 R2
RTM In-Place Upgrade is supported

We are able to pre-purchase the licences, so obviously we don't want to
uninstall a good setup if we get one going

regards

Frank

Hello Frank,

If this is the RTM version you should be ablt to use the system properties,
scroll down to "change produckt key", add the full licensed key and activate
the software.

Hello Marc B.,

No, only as 64bit version. All new released versions will come only as 64bit,
as you can see with exchange 2007/2010, SBS / EBS versions, 2008 R2 etc.

Best regards
