    Does anyone know why Windows 7 cannot be downloaded with a key on the MS website?

    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.)

    I have my Laptop Dell Latitude E5430 running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit installed by OEM Dell image downloaded from Windows ISO Downloader from Heidoc.net. Is there any chance that I can install OEM Windows images of another/different Dell models to my Laptop? Will there be any issues during the installation?

    The images are mostly identical (with a few exceptions). If you choose an image from the same series, you should be fine.

    Can you tell me why this problem occured?

    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....

  5. 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...

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    If October 1 is restored, does that mean that the downloads can be generated from that day? If so, I will be there without a doubt being one of the first since I need to download Win7 Ult Spanish x64

    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.

    Is it now absolutely impossible to get Windows 7 iso because i really need it

    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.

    Is there any chance of getting Win 7 Ultimate 64x for the Dell Vostro 1220?  Thank you.

    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.

    Requesting a download can lead to one of the four following cases: Please explain the cases better; what is and where do I find a license. I only have the code numbers of Win7 and Office10. thanks for the explanation Yours sincerely From Switzerland

    Cases are updated with more details.
