Vista Beta Notes Did You see these notes!!

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by David Sherman, Jun 8, 2006.

  1. You may not be able to upgrade your installation of Windows Vista Beta
    2 (or RC1) to the final, commercially available edition of Windows
    Vista. To upgrade you will need to acquire the final edition of
    Windows Vista and you may have to do a clean installation.
    Time-limited software

    Windows Vista Beta 2 (and RC1) is time-limited, pre-release software
    that will expire on June 1, 2007.

  2. Well, yeh that's expected. It's very likely there will be another build from
    Beta 2 (RC1) anyway - so don't worry about it. Just do a clean installation
    and back up everything before you have a RTM copy of Vista.

    from the windows vista "Get Ready" site:

    When you register for the Customer Preview Program you will receive the Beta
    2 release plus Windows Vista Release Candidate 1 (RC1) — the next major
    pre-release of Windows Vista — when it is available later this year. The
    information on this page pertains to both Beta 2 and RC1.

    so there will be another pre-release version (RC1), and you're already
    registered for it. you still might have to back up your files and do a clean
    install when the RTM version comes out.
