How to Fix Sql Server Evaluation Period Has Expired Error

If you are using Sql Server for development or testing purposes, you may have installed the evaluation edition, which is free for 180 days. However, after this period expires, you will encounter an error message that says "Sql Server evaluation period has expired". This error will prevent you from starting the Sql Server service or using Sql Server tools such as Sql Server Management Studio (SSMS) or Sql Profiler. In this article, we will show you how to fix this error and continue using Sql Server.


Why does this error occur?

This error occurs because the evaluation edition of Sql Server is not a permanent license and has a limited duration. After 180 days, the license expires and you need to either purchase a paid edition of Sql Server or upgrade to a free edition such as Developer, Express, or Web. If you do not take any action, the Sql Server service will stop working and you will see the error message when you try to use any Sql Server tool.
