    I tried to generate a download link using the download tool and then I was IP-banned by Microsoft again.It seems that your download tool is the culprit for my IP being banned.

    IPs get banned after generating about 5 to 10 download links, no matter whether you do that through the MS website, or the download tool, or other means.

    Just wait 24 hours to be unblocked.

  2. Windows 8.1 is working fine.


    If you get an error message, then your IP has been blocked by MS.

    As for Win 7/Office, I suspect that MS is blocking my keys.

    I'll wait for another week to see if this is just a temporary issue with the API, and if it doesn't go away, I'll work on out an update to work around MS's latest attempt to withhold Win 7 images from the majority of legitimate owners.

    In the mean time, if you need a Dell reinstallation image, follow the instructions in this thread:


  3. Hi guys,

    Windows Vista is no longer supported, but technically, the downloader should be running fine if IE and .NET are up to date. I no longer have a Vista VM, so I can't verify whether this is still the case.

    If the downloader shows a blank screen, my best guess would be deactivated TLS 1.2 on OS level (to be re-activated in control panel > internet settings).

    If that doesn't do the trick, just say which file(s) you want to have, and I'll generate the link for you (unless someone else is faster).

  4. I think you misunderstood. I'd require a key to be able to add Win 7 Home Basic.

    I no longer actively search for more keys to add. If you want a particular Windows/Office version to be added to the downloader, you can hunt for a key, and forward it to me.

  5. I can add any product key that unlocks a download on this site:


    (That includes all kind of Win 7 keys, but also various Office versions and applications like Visio.)

    Afterwards, the general public can enjoy free downloads.

    Unfortunately, most Dell Win 7 keys won't work (although I was given one Dell Win 7 Home Premium key that did unlock the download, which is now included).

    Therefore, chances are, your key is not gonna help me.

    So I have two ideas for you to try:

    1. Grab the Win 7 Home Premium OEM images, and apply the ei.cfg remover to it.

    2. Download the reinstallation image with the instructions given here:


  6. I most cases the non OEM download should work fine. Maybe there are some exception cases (geographically restricted versions etc.)

    Anyway, the downloader is based on a key database to unlock the downloads (some keys have been donated, some keys I purchased for the database). If you need a particular version of Windows or Office to be added, you may consider donating a suitable key.

  7. Hi Francesco,

    This is actually the subforum for the Italian speaking community! :-)

    Anyway, I can answer you here.

    There are no more 64 bit downloads for Office 2013/2016. MS olnly lets you download "Click-to-Run" versions these days. (Office being "streamed" to your computer, and executed on a tightly integrated VM. Look up Click-to-Run to get some background idea on the kind of dodgy stuff MS is doing there.)

    If you want to have a full 32 or 64 bit installer, you've got to configure that yourself with the deployent tool.

    I've written some instructions for that here: https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/technology-science/microsoft/79-create-an-office-2013,-2016-and-365-offline-installer-with-the-office-deployment-tool

    If you have difficulties replicating these steps, please open a new thread in the Office 2016 subforum.
