Volumn Activation on Stand Alone Machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • My company has a VL and I am trying to evaluate Windows7 and Server 2008R2 on stand alone machines.  They seem to install under a "demo" license and time out with the saying my copy is not genuine or could not activate when I try.  I have tried different keys.  It gives a message about no DNS entry.  Do these products need to be on a network?   I tried to reset the evel time in the registry but that didn't work.  Is there a way to activate under these keys without a DNS server.  TIA.
