generally evaluation period is for 180 days and when it ends, you will not be able to use it. I don't understand your question clearly

the following query will give you the results.

select datediff(dd,getdate(),dateadd(dd,180,min(crdate))) as daysleft from sysdatabases where status = 16

it gives the difference of  date when first database is created on the server and today's date.

Just try any of the methods here

1. Open SSMS --> Help --> About.
2. Just go through the Bootstrap log in the path
%WINDIR%\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\

This will contain the Installation date and hence you would be able to find it out.
