Turn POS Ready 2009 Evaluation Key to Product key without re-install it RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi POSReady team:

    - I have a PC with installed POSReady 2009 evaluation OS  (Test Product Key / 120 days trial).
    - just now  I have received a real Production Product Key ( no expiry day)

    Wonder any method I can do to turn the evaluation copy to become Production copy without re-installation on the same PC ?

    Cheers

  • No, there is no way to remove the timebomb.  You must reinstall with the production product key.  There are actually governmental restrictions that prevent us from allowing any product evaluation with a timebomb from being converted to a production image.
