How to Use Windows Vista and Windows 7 for One Year Without Activation?

You have to use the same slmgr -rearm command in this method too.

So here is the step-by-step method:

1. Click on “Start button -> All Programs -> Accessories“. Right-click on “Command Prompt” and select “Run As Administrator“. If you are prompted to enter password, enter the password and continue. You can also open Command Prompt in Administrator mode by typing “cmd” in Start Menu Search box and press “Ctrl+Shift+Enter“.

2. Now provide following command:

slmgr -rearm

3. You’ll be prompted to restart Windows, restart it and the trial period will be reset to 30 days again.

4. You can use the same command 3 times. In this way you’ll be able to use Windows for 120 days without activation.

5. Now its time for the main trick. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now go to following key:

For Windows Vista:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SL

For Windows 7:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

6. In right-side pane, change value of SkipRearm to 1.

One thought on “How to Use Windows Vista and Windows 7 for One Year Without Activation?

  1. Do I have to do slmgr -rearm every 30 days? Is there a way that I can automate “slmgr -rearm” to take advantage longer period? I am thinking using Scheduler task to automate execute the task to “ream” every days for up to a year.
