Are you referring to LR 4-1 RC1?  It should give a expiration when you install it. Likely 30 days or less.

... you're wrong here: only the final releases have the 30d trial period, while RCs are free and have a fixed expiration date - you can find this on the Adobe download page http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom4-1 - in this case it's 6/30/2012

That is true, if they do not release lr 4-1 before 6/30, in which case there will be a 4-1 RC2.  Expect 4-1 to be released in about 30 days.

... and even then, nobody exactly forces you to upgrade if you didn't pay it yet and you can use the rc1 for the full period. Don't know if that is Adobe-legal, but it certainly works (ask your firewall for details).

You are correct, LR4 is out, it is LR4.1 that was release in Beta form as it now support the 5DmkIII which was not supported in LR4.  LR4.1 is not an "official" release yet but will be soon...

Maybe its just me... but I had BSOD's in win 7 after installing 4.1. Could be a co-incidence or there could be a link. But reinstalling Windows and all apps was no fun at all... took a week.

Upgrading minor releases is free. But if you already purchased LR3, you're in for a shock - Adobe lowered the price so much due to Apple's Aperture that the upgrade price is not that much different from the full version anymore :-p

 :o You're scaring me!! I haven't had a single BSOD on my Win 7 Pro but it could also be due to computer power etc.  I remember when I blew through them at times from running too many powerful programs and stuff on my old computer before I built this behemoth. I've only run it once on here, but will be more weary as I um, can't afford to have to completely reinstall everything and lose all my info- in fact, I think I might be off to Fry's today for some backup hard drives >< Haha.

Not sure if it will help you- but I built this comp almost 2 years ago, not a hitch (knock on wood) since then, and it's running Win 7 Pro 64 bit, Quad Core AMD Phenom II 965 Processor at 3.41 GHz with 8gb of RAM and like, 3 640gig hds or something. Although if anything, I think the RAM might be the thing to BSOD you. (Could be something else, I'm not really a comp science major, I'm an Architecture major so I know how to build and put things together, just not the technical science behind it :P)

Did you google the event id for the BSOD? That will normally help identify where the culprit lies. I've not experienced BSOD with LR (any version) incl RC 4.1 64bit. Mine tend to be HW / HW Drivers related....
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

Googled stuff up. Found nothing. Never had issues before installing 4.1

I have a i7-950 @4Ghz, 12 GB RAM. 128GB SSD with 1.5TB Back-up HDD. I have a second set of 12 GB's that I swapped out and both sets had same issue.

Reinstalled.. works fine now (not installed LR4.1 yet... I am too scared): I say fine... but sometimes I will get BSOD's while the system is trying to sleep... which might be a driver issue, but before after 10 minutes of booting regardless of what i was doing, it would BSOD after every 10 minutes of logging into Win 7 Ultimate x64bit.

Again it could be just my system.
