Hi there
certainly not by any methods even allowed to be thought about on this Forum. But you CAN extend (legally) the evaluation period via slmgr /rearm. I think a maximum number of 6 times are allowed.

I have W2022 Server evaluation and have extended it beyond the initial 180 day evaluation via the slmgr /rearm command.

Cheers

It is sufficient to run the slmgr /ream command in a terminal window of Windows 11 Enterprise Evaluation 22H2 to extend its life for 180 days without any side effect. Right?

If yes, when should I run this command to achieve the greatest effectiveness?

Thanks

Bye

If the command works with the Windows 11 Enterprise Evaluation then there shouldn't be any negative effects even if a rearm is not possible, but a system backup would be wise before entering the playing field; and I can find no information on whether or not Microsoft allows the trial period for the Enterprise version to be extended. AFAIK if you use the command 'slgmr /dlv' first, it should report the OS licensing details, and provide information on whether any rearm periods are available.

Hi folks

As admin

1) slmgr -ato
2) slmgr -rearm

3) re-boot and to verify: slmgr -dlv.

Windows 2022 server free evaluation works up to 6X so 6X 180 days. Can't see why W11 enterprise won't extend either.


Cheers

Sorry, but I haven't understood if this trick also works on the Windows 11 Enterprise Evaluation 22H2.

Is there a method to verify it before its expiration?

Thanks
