Extending Trials of TFS

I often advocate using virtual machines and, in particular, Brian Keller’s VM for getting up to speed on our latest TFS changes.  While I’m not sure about your usage, I often run these VM’s as long as possible but sometimes run up against the end of the trial period for TFS.  I ran across this article from Brian Harry he wrote a while back about extending the trial period and thought I would share.

 

For TFS 2010, 2012, and later the procedure can be found here:

For TFS 2005 and 2008 the process for extending the trial period can be found here:

  • As Brian Keller writes himeself, the current batch of 2012 release canidates cannot be extended:

  • Ben,

    That is true.  I only talk about the RTM versions and you should only be using the RTM versions at this point anyway, in my opinion.
