How long can I extend the trial period for Visual Studio 2010

I must make a decision between using WPF or WinForms, and I am in the unfortunate position of being flat broke.

I need to finish a demo, with no commercial value, then use that to get funding and take it commercial.

If I register the Visual Studio to extend the trial period, will than eventually run out on me?  If I commit to WPF, when Winforms may have worked, and my trial were to end, I would be out of luck.

Does that trial go on and on?  Or will it end, perhaps a day before I complete me work?  Anybody know?

I would be leary of promises made or heard.  I bought VS2008 just a few weeks before the release of 2010 with the promise of a free upgrade to VS2010.  When I called for the upgrade they chuckled and saod of course I misunderstood.  This coming from the Microsoft store itself,
