I downloaded the beta program back in July to my new Windows 7 system and have it totally integrated. This morning I get a window that pops up the "beta expired, please uninstall". No link to upgrade/update/purchase... nothing. I'm just asked to uninstall.

Has this happened to anyone else and did you end up purchasing it...what happened with all your archived info in Outlook?

Seems strange I can't buy it :/

I remember when I downloaded the beta it said it wouldn't be able to turn into the full version, you would have to reinstall.

I think your best bet would be to back up your outlook data file and all other bits you want to keep, buy a copy of W7, format, install and copy back Outlook data.
