If you installed and are using TFS 2010 Beta 2 or the Release Candidate and have not found the time to upgrade to RTM yet, you’ll want to get going on that soon. The expiration date for both Beta 2 and the Release Candidate is June 30, 2010 – that’s just over a month away as I write this. You can upgrade either to a purchased copy of TFS for to a trial version (which will give you an extra 90 – 120 days).
The process is pretty easy:
1. Uninstall TFS Beta2 or RC
2. Install TFS 2010 RTM release
3. Select the "Upgrade from Previous Version" wizard
(Note: Always be sure to have a good backup copy of your TFS databases and system)
To check on your license type and expire date open the TFS Administration Console on the TFS server, select the top node on the navigation tree and on the right hand side of the first node you will see the license information.
