Beta 3 upgrade?

Beta 3 upgrade?

Beta 3 upgrade?

Does anyone know if I have to purchase Windows 2000 released version to upgrade my Beta 3 (Build 2031) version?
Any knowledge would be appreciated.

RE: Beta 3 upgrade?

What other option are you thinking of trying? Legally once Win2k was release last week, you had to stop using the Beta software (its in the beta license agreement).

I guess I'm not following what other option you are proposing... There were some changes between Beta 3 and the Released version, so it would be in your best interest to upgrade to the released version if for no other reason that its stupid to continue running on a development copy of a software package - you are just asking for trouble.

So to answer your question as I understand it, yes you need to buy the released version of Win2k to upgrade your Beta software (although I would personally install the released version from scratch and not upgrade a beta install - once again you are just asking for trouble...)

RE: Beta 3 upgrade?

I was just wondering if there was an update that I didn't know about. I wasen't looking for a crack.
Thanks for the info.
