A tool for reporting expiration dates for RC and RTM trial editions of Team Foundation Server

Buck Hodges

As some customers have found out the hard way, the TFS release candidates have started to expire without warning at the end of the 6 month (180 days) period.  The TFS trial edition (RTM) will start to expire next month, again without warning.  It also expires 6 months after installation.

This morning, Brian Harry posted a tool that you can use to detect which version of Team Foundation Server you have installed and when it will expire.

More Expirations Coming Soon…

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the impending expirations of TFS Release Candidate installations and Trial installations that were installed soon after release.  Both the TFS Release Candidate and the TFS Trial Edition have 6 month expiration periods.  Many of the Release Candidate builds started expiring this month.  Trial Editions will start expiring in September.
