I am trying to run the 'takeown...' command below and I get this error:

C:\Users\Administrator>takeown /F %windir%\System32\wlms\wlms.exe && icacls %win
dir%\system32\wlms\wlms.exe /deny S-1-1-0:F

SUCCESS: The file (or folder): "C:\Windows\System32\wlms\wlms.exe" now owned by
user "VM1-MASTER\Administrator".
S-1-1-0: No mapping between account names and security IDs was done.
Successfully processed 0 files; Failed processing 1 files

takeown /F %windir%\System32\wlms\wlms.exe && icacls %windir%\system32\wlms\wlms.exe /deny S-1-1-0:F

It is because it says my Windows 2008 expired but actually, I just installed it and hasn't been more than a month.  I need to test an application but the shutdown is preventing me from running the application.

Does anyone know how I can properly run this or prevent the shutdown from happening, even better, properly extend the trial period without having to rebuild the VM?
