  1. Why do you think so? I was able to use the download for installing Visio Pro before.
  2. Version 8.22 (11 November 2019): Updated to .NET Framework 4.8; added Windows 10 October 2019 Update; added Insider and developer versions up to build 19504; added more DELL models and images; added Windows Admin Center Preview 1909; new icon for ISO Tools, re-positioned icon for downloads database; other minor bugfixes.
  3. I've never worked with the August 2018 update. I don't know whether it has all the repair options. Maybe someone else can answer that. I was actually speaking about the normal Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 English download, the link of which has already been generated by someone, and is currently still available.
  4. Download Win 7 Ultimate SP1 English, and make an all-in-one ISO file from it (button "ISO Tools").
  5. Requests are handled on a first-come first-served basis directly through the app. Win 7 downloads will be available until around 6 November end of day.
  6. Most keys that are still for sale are for OEM, education, system builder, family pack, MSDN and counterfeit versions. However, the download site requires a key from a FPP retail product, or an ESD key sold by MS or one of their official partners (Digital River, Amazon etc.)
  7. With a delay of almost two months, Windows 10 1909 has been released, only for MSDN subscribers for now. Hashes are available here: https://www.heidoc.net/php/myvsdump_name.php?family=&name=Windows+10+(consumer+editions)%2C+version+1909 Downloads will be added to the downloader once released to the general public.
  8. The images are mostly identical (with a few exceptions). If you choose an image from the same series, you should be fine.
  9. First come first served. Links for languages with many users are more likely to be generated: English, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Turkish, German, Spanish, Chinese.
  10. The least requests this months were between 22:00 and 6:00 UTC (about 40% less compared to peak time). Now having revealed this information pubicly, it might no longer be the case next month.... And peak time was between 13:00 and 16:00.
  11. October 6 was yesterday. Next chance will be 1 to 6 November. Cached download links have a green font. Apart from those, one link can be generated per hour (across all ~20,000 users who want to generate downloads).
  12. I can, but this is not good news. Only one Visio link can be generated each month, and you managed to grab that spot a few hours ago. However, some error occurred on Microsoft's side during link generation, and you got that first error message directly from MS. Now the next opportunity to get a Visio link will be in November. D'oh....
  13. Correct. However, if you're lucky, someone has generated the Office 2010 link that you require in the past 24 hours, so that it can be served from cache.
  14. Microsoft will probably make the 1903 v2 downloads available in the next few days. For now, you can download the original 1903 builds from the top of the dropdown list.
  15. Only one link can be generated per hour. According to the logs, about 800 users compete for each download slot. It's not possible to honour each request. There are enough licenses on the database to keep generating downloads for about 6 days. If the download you need is not yet available, keep trying.
  16. 30 minutes from now, and then one link per hour. I'll be monitoring the first link generation at 2 a.m. my time, to see whether any immediate actions are necessary., and will have a closer look at the logs tomorrow morning to see whether this experiment is going to be successful or not. Edit: I miscalculated by one hour... The first link generation will happen in one hour from now... I'll check the logs in the morning...
  17. In case MS requests a DMCA takedown, the SQL dump will surely somehow mysteriously make its way to a code sharing platform... In the unlikely case of a lack of resources, I'm sure I'll find a way to either copy the project onto some free webspace, or make the database available for download. But as I said, I'll integrate an offline version into the ISO downloader, so the database will never be lost for good.
  18. I've already started researching database handling in Visual Studio some time ago to be able to provide offline access through the ISO downloader. It's not as straightforward as it sounds... Version 9.0 will feature a complete re-design of the application. Maybe I'll include the database with a very basic search interface, similar to the new downloads database. A downloadable SQL dump is not an option. I do see the benefit of having mirrors and clones of important data, however, I had several weeks effort of reverse engineering and collecting the data. Fact is, my livelihood relies 90 to 95% on advertising revenue, and providing the tools to clone a web interface to the data would be counterproductive. Instead, I will create a secondary backup of the data in the cloud, to make sure that in a worst case scenario it will not be lost.
  19. It contains all updates up until August 2018 including new versions of MSIE and .NET, and it is legal. Comes straight from MS server.
  20. It's an experimental feature. Downloads will be generated at an extremely slow rate to avoid being blocked by Microsoft. From the tests I've made, I'm confident that it's going to work, but only at a rate of one download per hour, for about 20,000 daily users... Therefore, chances for people to get the exact download they need might be a bit low. But if you need an Ultimate download, you can still go for a different edition (Home, Pro), and convert the iso file to an all-in-one file.
  21. It's not impossible. There are helpful forum users here who can help with a request. There are also illegal download sites, however, they may not be shared here. You'll find them easily by googleing the file name or the hash of the file you need. If you share your service tag, I can have a look, but I don't have much hope. Dell seems to provide only Win 7 Pro and Home Basic for public download. Cases are updated with more details.
  22. Unfortunately no. Acer doesn't provide a public API for generating downloads.
