slmgr.vbs -ipk <insert your product key here> command at an elevated command prompt, or slmgr.vbs -upk and then you will get the button back.
I haven't activated yet, instead I am waiting it out to see how long it works without activation. Most of my testing is done this way, I'm hoping that get 3-10 days and if so, that will be perfect for most things that I do.
Brummy, I think he is ummmmmmmmmmmm upset that the American version is 12 hour, and not 24 hour as with the UK.
12 hours in the AM (Ante Meridiem), and 12 hours in the PM (Post Meridiem), personally I don't see the biggie in it. And being taught that, and also being in the Military, 13 hundred, 14 hundred, 15 hundred hours, etc. JUST sounds dumb to me. Check it out yourself Midnight 24 hundred hours, or 24 hundred hours Midnight. Come on now, that doesn't sound totally dumb to you? Even the American Navy that also uses the 24 hour clock saying while on watch 18 hundred hours and ALLS well!!
re-checked -- I actually downloaded the PRO version the first time by mistake.
the Enterprise version definitely states claimed 1 out of 1 keys - Multiple activation
Sorry for any error My fault ---
The speed of download was so quick and I assumed that only W8 Enterprise would be available on TechNet after all the posts previously -- so I downloaded the first version I saw -- scrolled down further and saw Enterprise version
BTW what's the difference between the ENG version (which I downloaded) and the UK English version -- since you can install your input keyboard and language what's the difference.
BTW thanks for the tip on activation -- to enter the product key.
z3r010 said:What's wrong with that format? mm = 2 digit for the month example 03, 2 digits for the day 25, and 4 digit for the year: 1994.No, on install of my UK ISO the date format was the completely illogical mm/dd/yyyy
I find it no harder then using Mar/March - 25 - 1994. Actually if memory serves me correct, wasn't it YOU (UK) that started that WHOLE decimal dilemma? Making the world use .25 - .50 - .75? Instead of just using 1/4 - 1/2 - 3/4?
The correct date format that the majority of the world uses is dd/mm/yyyy or the ISO stardard of yyyy/mm/dd so the date is either in ascending or descending order unlike the US version (see picture posted at top of page).
One error in that picture, it should be day, NOT date. The collection of the 3 mm/dd/yyyy makes the date.
Yes there is a slight error in his diagram but you know what he means
Edit - I've fixed the diagram just for you.
