Rearm Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation To Extend 90 Days Trial (How To)

Microsoft has officially released evaluation (trial) version of Windows 8 RTM (Final Build). It is Enterprise version which would run for free till 90 days without any limitation. Rearm is a inbuilt feature which lets you extend trial period of Windows 8.

Not a new one but it is around in all Microsoft Products like Windows 7 Rearm or even Office 2010 rearm is also possible.

So, it isn’t cracking or illegal method to activate Windows 8. If you want to continue trial version for some more days, re-arm Windows 8 Evaluation version.

it is not 3 rearms only 1, we can do this after 89th day of the evaluation
hope it will expand days after rearm for 1 times only not 3?

    Nick Fortag - August 20, 2012

    I found out the hard way that there was only one rearm.

Please tell us already! I very much doubt it’s possible.

Riza - August 31, 2012

I tried it but I got error. Then I run command as Administrator and now it works. Just maybe you must mention it’s necessary to run as Administrator.
Thank You for the info. 🙂

Dear Rohit Langde,

My windows 8 license has been expired suddenly, Until yesterday 63 days was left, now it is showing that “Windows License is Expired”. Command for rearming is also not working. Please guide me what to do next. Whether i need to install windows again or any rearming process is there.

    Rohit Langde - September 17, 2012

    There is no Rearm process different than the one mentioned here (as far as I know).
    And Rearm has to be done atleast 1 day before the expiry date and after that there is no chance to get it back. I guess there may have been some change in system Date and Time settings and that’s the reason it expired.

    Reinstall is only the solution in front of me as no windows 8 crack or time reset is available yet.

      Bhuprit - September 17, 2012

      Thank you.
      I couldn’t identified the problem. But I am sure that system date and time was absolutely correct. Since i verified that before reinstalling that. I wanted to know one more thing about it. The desktop was absolutely fine while it giving the message about window expiration, only thing was disturbing me, that it was restarting again and again. Why it was doing so?

        Rohit Langde - September 17, 2012

        Yes, Restarting after every hour or two is a symptom that Windows evaluation period is over.
        Only way to get rid of it is reinstall. I would rather say get RTM if you can (already available on torrent sites) and less annoying than your case.
