2k7 Trial VHD: SPS already expired?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Installed the trial/demo VHD from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=67f93dcb-ada8-4db5-a47b-df17e14b2c74. Though the web page says this is good for 30 days from installation, we got it running and the VM itself is telling us that it's good until 2/2011. Well and fine. However, the installation of SPS itself apparently expired at the end of April of this year and seems pretty much non-functional.

Any suggestions as to what's needed to get this thing up and running, or should I just bite the bullet and grab the regular trial downloads and build a server myself?

Thanks. ddk

Unable to load External list in Sharepoint Foundation - error due to trial period expired

I've created an external content type and external list on Sharepoint Foundation. Everything is OK when creating and viewing these items in create mode in sharepoint designer. When trying to view the external list in the browser I get error message "Unable to display this Web Part..." When I opened the same list in the mobile view url I get a more descriptive error message: "The shim execution failed unexpectedly - The trial period for this product has expired.." I have read and followed the instruction related to this thread concerning expired trial period bug, and iisreseted the server after change but I still can't display the list. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010setup/thread/644ab342-4eaa-468c-95c1-f345a4f65f26#644ab342-4eaa-468c-95c1-f345a4f65f26 Any ideas anyone??

2007 VHD - Workflow Setting throws "The trial period for this product has expired"

I recently downloaded the SharePoint 2007 VHD from this link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=67f93dcb-ada8-4db5-a47b-df17e14b2c74&displaylang=en The above link shows 5/3/2010 as Date Published.  So I am assuming that this is the new version of VHD published this year. I am able to login to this VHD and also view the default SharePoint site.  But, when I goto Workflow Setting of a List and click on NEXT button, it throws "The trial period for this product has expired" error.  This error is not written in ULS LOGS. I also noticed something strange in "WIN03_MOSS_README.htm", which is part of this download.  The Program Details section in this Readme says: The evaluation period for this virtual machine image ends @ 2/22/2011.  NO EFFORT SHOULD BE MADE TO ACTIVATE THIS IMAGE.  After 2/10/2010, the evaluation period is over and the image should be discarded.  So what exactly is the expiry date of this VHD?  Is it 22-Feb-2011 or 10-Feb-2010?  Can someone from Microsoft VHD team provide a valid response. Thanks & Regards, Kamlesh | Blog | Twitter | Posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

Restore 2005 database on 2008 R2 Trial

I've downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 Trial and installed it on Windows Server 2008 trial running under Virtual PC on XP. I've made backups of databases on my SQL Server 2005 and tried to restore them using a) the wizard - results in a messagebox saying "Specified cast is not valid" and no backup sets are available in the Restore Database window. b) using T-SQL - results in Msg 3183, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 RESTORE detected an error on page (0:0) in database "dp" as read from the backup set. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. Using the wizard and RESTORE on 2005 for the same database backup works fine. c) Detach on 2005 and Attach on 2008 results in: SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect pageid... Detach and Attach worked fine on 2005 and DBCC CHECKDB revealed no errors. Thanks for any info...
