Windows Server 2019 Essentials Trial Activation Key

Hello,

While installation of Windows Server 2019 Essentials trial, it asks for Activation Key. Where do I get this key from without having to purchase the software?

The evaluation download here has the product key embedded. An internet connection is required for long enough to complete activation, then evaluation is good for 180 days.

Yes, I downloaded from the same link. It asks for Key. I am not able to proceed with installing the evaluation version.

How are you installing? The download may be corrupt. ISP's employ caching devices to control bandwidth so try again via a different ISP to avoid the same cached copy.

Hi,

There is a product key in the download link. Have you tested to see if the key could be used or not?

Thank you. I am very new to using Windows Server. I am surprised I did not notice this key was placed in the topics listed when you download. Also I want to point out that DSPatrick is full of himself.
