Windows Vista Beta 2 (and RC1) is time-limited, pre-release software that will expire on June 1, 2007.

i don't think i can get a key now.

For registered customers who have received a Product Key the download sites will remain open until Friday, July 14.

IDK what to do now

The Public Beta is no longer available for sign up. Since you didnt get you Key when you could you are going to have to find one on the Net. I highly doubt it will activate though.

Either that or if you know someone that did sign up and htey were able to get the 2 serials. (You got 2 per email address) Maybe they will give you one of the serials so you can activate.

Other than that you are outta luck. It expires next year. Hint its 2006 it expires 2007.

So it will be good for a while.

That was the site you should have gotten the Key from.
