Last Modified: 2018-08-22
Im setting up a Hyper V lab to do some training. I downloaded the 180 day trial of server 2012. Does anyone know where i can get one for Windows 10 and Server 2016?

I was going to put in the same links as DrDave...   and the sites behaved exactly the same way for me.

While you do your training, if the evaluation period runs out, launch an elevated command prompt and run 'slmgr.vbs -rearm'.  This will extend your trial for another 180 days.  I believe you can do this six times.

Hi Jospeh,

I haven't tried it, but where are you getting the 'six times' from?

If true, that means you can use it for up to 6 x 6 months = 3 years, which seems like quite a long time!
