    VMWare trial running out

    I bought a HP Microserver a few months back and installed what I thought was the free VMWare VSphere but it appears I must have downloaded the trial of the paid version because it keeps saying I've got like 15 days left to register it.

    If I leave it, will it just stop me accessing it or will it convert to the free version? Do I need to get the VM's off there and install VSphere Hypervisor (that is the free version right? why are their names so confusing?)

    You need to change the licence key to the free version. Its just a case of entering the correct key from the VMware site.

    (Same thing happened to mine!)
