If you receive the message “Your Windows license will expire soon”, your Windows license is about to expire. You have to bring machine to campus and connect it to JAMK’s internal network. We recommend that you restart the machine once to ensure that the license is updated.
It is possible for the machine to be out of the intranet for 6 months, after that Windows requires a license renewal. If it not possible to connect computer to JAMK network, please follow these instructions.
You can check the number of days remaining through the Software Center on the Windows desktop. Start the Software Center and look for a program called “Check activation – Status”. Install the program and after about 30 seconds you will get the remaining days of Windows and Office products on your screen.
