No more booting: Product expiration for QNX 6.2.0 ???!

Hi,

I just realized for this system that there is a product expiration date!
(Aug. 31st,2002)
no boot possible so far, neither disk nor floppy disk

Any ideas??

The Momemtics PE beta expired on that date I believe. I am running
6.2 NC without any problems. The beta license required you to remove
the beta software from your system as of July 10th IIRC.

this was free download as of this spring!

Hi Rennie

I do not quite understand this because I am not aware of having
downloaded a PE version. What I downloaded this spring was the normal
“get it free” version of QNX 6.2.0 ( this ISO-image)

Do you by chance know what that means??

No. I am afraid I don’t. I was hoping that maybe mentioning the PE beta
thing might set off a light bulb for you. I have been running QNX6.2NC at
home, and have rebooted several times since August 31st without any
problems.

tnx, Rennie,
I digged a bit and got some further info from some friends here. The
point is I downloaded the April 2002 “get it free”-version which was
se620 (standard edition) beta3 without knowing that it would expire.

Now yesterday night I downloaded the nc620 iso image hoping that that
works :slight_smile:
