    Sorry about the inconvenience. Unfortunately, Windows 7 is currently completely blocked. I've not had the time to remove the notification about the Wednesday availability from the tool.
    The DELL downloads are multilingual though and include the Italian language pack.

    At this stage, the best solution is to download from "other sources", and compare the hash.

    Jan Krohn got a reaction from almody1234 in Important announcement: ISO Downloader blocked by Microsoft   
    Unfortunately MS has managed again to block the ISO Downloader from generating download links for Win 7 and Office 2010.
    It is still unclear whether it is a temporary block, or whether my collection of product keys, that generate the links in the background, has been completely burned. As for now, I'm pausing link generation for the next 24 hours, before re-starting it with a massive throttle. Cached download links of the past 24 hours remain accessible until they expire.
    In the mean time, you can either download the files from DELL (multi-lingual), or use the recently leaked updated Win 7 images (English only):

    These images include all updates up until August 2018 including (warning!!) the Windows 7 telemetry updates.
    These downloads will be included in the next version of the ISO downloader.
    The future of the normal Win 7 downloads depends on whether my key collection will start working again after a few days of cool down period. If they do, we will be able to provide a few language editions per product (about two to five different languages at a time, determined by community demand).
    If the key collection is burned, I will let it cool down for about six months, and then try again to provide a few language editions per product (possibly obtaining more product keys in this time frame, to be able to add very few downloads back before the six months are up). I will give an update after the weekend to let you know which of these two possibilities is the case.
    The next release of the ISO downloader is planned for some time next week, including the Win 7 August 2018 updates, as well as some highlighting in the languages dropdowns for Win 7 and Office 2010 to indicate which languages are currently available.

    Jan Krohn reacted to SnowBall in MS-DOS Editor is back!   
    I think it might just be better to provide a standalone portable MS-DOS Editor rather than having to install NTVDMx64 for 64-bit Windows users.
    Download here
    It will create a temp file in the working directory so make sure that directory is not write protected. Some characters might not show correctly but I don't think that is a big issue. It can run withing Command Prompt or standalone. The other good thing is it can interact with your system so you can copy text using notepad and paste into Edit or vice versa. 
    Running in Command Prompt:

    Yes! Finally it was made possible! Microsoft was working on a Chromium based Edge browser and it works on Windows 7! I have not yet tested it on older Windows versions but still this is amazing. If you want to use the latest version Microsoft Edge Online Installer, download it from here: https://msedgesetup.azureedge.net/latest/MicrosoftEdgeSetup.exe This setup does not yet work but you can start the installer by using the the command: MicrosoftEdgeSetup.exe /install "appguid={65C35B14-6C1D-4122-AC46-7148CC9D6497}".
    Download Links:
    All Versions Currently Available
    75.0.107.0 (64 Bit)
    75.0.109.0 (64 Bit)
    75.0.111.0 (64 Bit)
    How to install:
    1. Download Microsoft Edge installer from links above.
    2. Extract the ZIP archive.
    3. Double click on setup.exe and it will install silently to your AppData folder.

    Are you sure there are updated iso files?
    My understanding was that whenever Dell makes a new iso file available, it could be downloaded with existing service tags, but maybe I'm mistaken about that.
    Anyway, if you provide a service tag that qualifies for a file that's not yet available through the tool, just let me know the tag, and I'll make an update available.

    Jan Krohn got a reaction from Boskorp in EU copyright reform, article 13, and possible impact on WinCert   
    Dear Community,
    If you've not yet looked into the details of the upcoming copyright reform in the EU, the following will shock you. No matter whether you're located in the EU or not, this will impact you, as all online portals that have a presence in the EU will need to comply.
    The proposed directive has just passed through the EU Committee of Legal Affairs, and will be voted upon by the EU Parliament on 23 March. If the directive passes through parliament as well, it will become binding law throughout the entire EU by 23 March 2021.
    So what does it mean, not only for WinCert, but every other online forum located in the EU, and even big portals like Twitter, Facebook, Youtube etc. that also have EU presences?
    1. It will force upload filters on all these portals (article 13).
    So what are upload filters? Think about YouTube. They developed an upload filter that automatically tests any uploaded video for copyright violations, and automatically rejects any video that is flagged. Development of that thing cost them more than 100 million dollars, and it doesn't work properly.
    Everything that is user contributed (text, images, videos etc.) would have to be filtered through that software. As of now, it's a technology that exists exactly once on this planet, developed by Google/Youtube… They will set the pricing. They will decide who they're gonna allow access to it.
    Failure to comply with this requirement would be more or less equal to shutting down the forum.
    2. It will prohibit the use of content snippets with links, unless the platform acquires a license from the publisher.
    So what's a content snippet?
    It's basically a shared link with an attached snippet. Paste a link into Facebook, Twitter, WinCert etc. and it will fetch and display a preview within the portal:
    So in order to do what I've just done here, after 23 March 2021, WinCert would require a license from ZDNet to use this snippet of content. Of course this rule would cover sharing of snippets by all WinCert users, and licenses from all news publishers. If any of you guys would share any snippet for which we're not licensed, the publisher could sue WinCert/HeiDoc/me for compensation, and we would probably also get fined.
    So am I exaggerating here? I wish I were... It really is going to be the disaster of the magnitude described.
    So what can you do, especially if you're a EU citizen?
    1. Don't ignore the mess until it's too late. Be aware of the development, and share your knowledge about it, as it concerns everyone.
    2. Sign the petition.
    3. Use the hashtag #SaveYourInternet
    4. Write to your MP/MEP, especially if they are pro copyright reform. An overview of all MEP and their view (pro/con/unknown) in the links below.
    5. If you have a vote in the EU parliamentary elections in May, make sure not to vote for any copyright reform proponent. You can find both proponents and opponents across the entire political spectrum.
    6. Join the protest (online and offline).

    Jan Krohn got a reaction from FreeThinkerMS in New Office 2019 Download Links   
    Here's some background knowledge:
    Each edition of Microsoft Office comes in two (or actually three) different licensing flavours: Retail/OEM and Volume License (VL).
    VL licenses are for large companies and enterprises, but in the EU it is legal to sell, buy and use second hand VL licenses (although I do wonder where a second hand Office 2019 key should come from just a couple of weeks after the initial release...)
    Since activation for the two licensing models works fundamentally different, MS distributes two different installation files. You can't use a Retail or OEM key to activate a VL installation, and you can't use a VL key to unlock a Retail/OEM installation.
    MS only makes Retail/OEM installation images publicly available - no luck for VL users here. Installation media for VL licenses would have been given to the business that initially purchased it.
    Office 2019 is also not yet available on MSDN (very strangely), therefore I can't find out the hash (checksum), which would make finding a genuine file quite easy.
    Bottom line: there's not much I can do to help you. Better ask the seller for the installer.
    (Reminder to all: it's not allowed to post copyrighted files or links to them here, just in case someone knows where to find it. Of course we respect users' privacy and don't monitor private messages.)
