Vista OEM = "Evaluation copy" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    My Vista activates OK, but on the desktop it says, "Evaluation copy: Build 6002".

    Evaluation? Is it going to expire?

    I purchased Vista Ultimate 64-bit OEM for my new computer build.

    Apologies if this has been answered before, but it appears the search function is broken.

  • Apparently, you or someone installed Windows Vista SP2 beta.  Uninstall this and reboot your PC two times and the message will disappear.
