Extend Vista trial period from 30 to 120 days


If you’ve been trying out Vista for the past 25 or so days (like me), your 30 day evaluation period is about to come to conclusion. A little known fact is that Microsoft built functionality into Vista that will extend the trail period for another 30 days. Open a Command Prompt session (Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> Command Prompt), type slmgr -rearm and hit enter. This “rearms” your activation period. You will only be allowed to rearm your computer three times. According to Microsoft this does not violate your license agreement.
