    I am trying to locate the 180 day evaluation download for Win2k3 but the links from previous posts take me to a 30 day evaluation only.

    Has M$ changed it's mind about 180 days? Also, is there no longer a Standard version of Win2k3? Is it Enterprise now?

    Is this what you guys were looking at? This is a preconfigured Virtual Hard Disk version for use with Virtual PC I assume. 8)

    EDIT: The link to the normal version's download process is on that page too.

    Well I've got to step 2 and registered for the trial software. That was yesterday. Got an email saying I'll hear from M$ soon. What's the hold-up. :x

    So, you reckon I'll get an evaluation key to activate it before 30 days and then I'll get a further 150 days to play?

    Kerf,

    The e-mail you refer came through immediately the one time i did this myself.

    If you plan on the long road of MCSE, (or any other indepth MS cert for that matter) you might want to think about an Actionpack

    Boyce, with the action pack you need at least 1 mcp.

    Since when?

    From here:

    No mention of MCP requirements at all. Further, I wasn't required to provide my MCP ID before I was allowed to subscribe.
