How long have the Server of PC been running? Sometimes you need to figure when the OS was started. As always there are different was of getting this information. Some ways are quick and easy when you are sitting with the OS GUI in front of you, but other times you might want to use it in a script or get it from the command line. Here are a selection of methods I use.

When was Windows installed?

For different reason, you might want to know when Windows installed.
Luckily you can find this information other places then checking out the date on certain system files that was created/modified and stamped at the same time as when you installed Windows. The file date stamp method does not in calculate that files change this information during upgrades etc. during the lifecycle of the installation 

In registry, you have a Key to help you with this information.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\InstallDate
