        • How to manually rearm the 10 day activation grace period
          When the initial 10-day activation period nears its end, you can run the Slmgr.vbs script to reset it back to 10 days. To do this, follow these steps:
        • 1. Click Start, and then click Command Prompt.

        • 2. Type slmgr.vbs -dli, and then press ENTER to check the current status of your activation period.

        • 3. To reset the activation period, type slmgr.vbs –rearm, and then press ENTER.

        • 4. Restart the computer.


        • This resets the activation period to 10 days, and can be used up to five times. After this you will need to either activate or reinstall the evaluation.
