I upgraded my VPC from beta to RC today and I received an error telling me that the “trial period has been expired”. The solutions are already in the CRM community. I just want to post it here on my blog for my future reference and also for the folks looking for the solution to this problem.
So there are two solutions to this problem.
Solution 1 – Import/Upgrade (Preferred Method)
Solution 2 – Connect to Existing (Note : This option requires the Administrator to update the license keys in the MSCRM_CONFIG database manually.)
use MSCRM_CONFIGupdate ConfigSettings set LicenseKeyV5RTM = 'MQM2H-JYYRB-RRD6J-8WBBC-CVBD3'
