In the modern world of technology, Microsoft’s Windows operating system has become one of the most popular choices for computer users. However, activating a Windows license can be a challenge for many. In this article, we will explore how to activate and use the trial version of Windows simply and effectively. For VPS users with the Windows operating system without a license, the VPS will automatically shut down after about 15 minutes. Activating the trial version can help resolve this issue on VPS.

Activation Steps

Usually, when you complete the installation of a server with the Windows operating system, you are provided with a 125-day trial. To extend the trial period, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open the Command Prompt

Note: you should open it with administrator rights.

Win 10:

Step 2: Activation Process

First, check how many trial activations are remaining on the server using the following command:

slmgr /dlv
CleanShot 2023 12 03 at 00.42.57@2x

Then the system will display information, and you only need to pay attention to the following two lines:

Timebased activation expiration: This is the remaining trial time.

Remaining windows rearm count: It indicates the remaining rearm count.

Step 3: Restart

At this point, you need to restart the server and recheck.
