Vista Ultimate RC2 Build 5744

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Joe Villarreal, Jun 2, 2007.

  1. I am using this version today (06/01/2007). Yesterday I received hourly
    messages that it would expire at midnight. This evening I got a message
    stating that it would expire in 0 hours.

    Is this normal?

  2. Yes. Did you not believe the warnings?

    Yep...the beta is time bombed to stop working when it did.

    Has it actually quit working?

    I should go into limited mode function. IE will work and you should be
    able to transfer files. It won't shut down completely.

    I case if haven't transferred files from Vista Beta to Vista
    full version on time - there is one an emergency "operation" you
    can run.

    You can install full version of Vista over Beta, as an upgrade
    but REMEMBER to take off "v" from the box of automatic activation,
    when starting your upgrade. Your full version of Vista will be installed
    over Vista Beta and you'll have access to you "Old Windows"
    files when Vista installation is finished.

    I "practiced it" twice, in two cases on my Betas and it worked on
    two different PCs.

    um.... the trick is.... when the warning box appears press "close" then
    the message goes away and Vista keeps working
