evaluation programs usually have a 30 day period...

in this case, i 've had the system running well over a year...

anyone know for how long the xp evaluation period is usually set...

other than waiting for the notice to appear is there any way of accessing it from the program itself...

thanks

Per MS, the evaluation version runs for 180 days. Wow!! did you get lucky.
Check this link for info right from "the great creator".

MS SUPPORT

Running Winver.exe from the run command will give you the needed info.
