Upgrade from Trial

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm thinking of installing the Windows 8.1 Enterprise 90 Day Trial on my laptop. After the evaluation period has passed, will I have the option to upgrade to a full license, and at what cost? Can I upgrade from the Enterprise Trial to another edition of Windows 8.1, like Windows 8.1 Pro or the standard edition, or would this require a new installation?

    Thanks.

  • babarmunir is correct. The download page for the Enterprise trial states:

    Following the evaluation period, you will need to replace the operating system on your test computer and reinstall all your programs and data. It is not possible to upgrade the evaluation to a licensed working version of Windows 8.1 Enterprise. A clean installation is required.

    Hope this helps,
