Win 7 / Office 2010: Monthly Download Days starting October 1 (experimental)

Recommended Posts

This will probably be the last chance to get Windows 7 and Office 2010 downloads, before Microsoft will drop support for these products in early 2020.

Starting October 1, 0:00 UTC, the download database will be reset every month. We will then generate one link per hour on a first come first served basis, until all licenses are used up. The database is then again reset on the first of the following month.

Requesting a download can result in one of the four following cases:

1. A license is available, and the last link generation has happened more than an hour ago ---> new link generation will be attempted, and if successful, the download can be provided.

2. The same download has been requested and generated in the last 24 hours ---> cached download link will be provided.

3. All licenses for the product have been used up ---> come back and try again next month.

4. A license is available, but another link generation was done in the last hour ---> come back and try again in a short time.

I will think about error messages so that you guys can distinguish between cases 3. and 4. easily. Let's see how this will go. Hopefully everyone can still get all downloads they need before MS takes them down for good...

So the coding for the October 1 download day is in place and confirmed working. Let's hope it will continue working in productive conditions too.

Case 3 message: "This file is currently unavailable, and can be provided again in a small capacity NEXT MONTH. For now, please select one of the downloads highlighted in green instead."

Case 4 message: "New downloads can be generated SHORTLY. In the mean time, you can select one of the downloads highlighted in green."

Messages will not be translated due to the short life span of a few months only before Win 7 EOL.

Będzie dostępna ostatnia szansa na pobranie systemu Windows 7 i pakietu Office 2010, zanim Microsoft zrezygnuje z obsługi tych produktów na początku 2020 roku.

Poczta pobierania od 1 października, 0:00 UTC, baza danych pobieranie będzie resetowana co miesiąc. Następnie należy wygenerować jeden link na godzinę według kolejności zgłoszeń, aż do wyczerpania wszystkich licencji. Baza danych jest następnie ponownie resetowana pierwszego dnia spotkania

Żądanie pobrań może zostać użyty jeden z czterech różnych przypadków:

1. Dostępna jest licencja, a ostatnie generowanie linków wymaga ponad godzin temu ---> podjęto decyzję o podjęciu próby wygenerowania nowego linku, a jeśli powiesz, pobierz będzie możliwe.

2. Zażądano i wygenerowano to samo pobieranie w ciągu ostatnich 24 godzin ---> zostanie podany link do pobrania z pamięci podręcznej.

3. Wszystkie licencje na produkt zostały zużyte ---> wróć i kontynuuj ponownie w przyszłym miesiącu.

4. Licencja jest dostępna, ale w ciągu ostatnich godzin wykonano kolejne generowanie linków ---> wróć i uruchom ponownie w krótkim czasie.

Pomyślę o komunikach o błędach, abyście mogli łatwo rozróżnić przypadki 3. i 4 .. Zobaczmy, jak to pójdzie. Mam nadzieję, że wszyscy nadal muszą mieć wszystkie potrzebne pliki, zanim MS usunie je na dobre ...

i noticed that in the dell option there was no metion of xps 9100 computer

If you post a service tag, I can try to add XPS 9100. But I don't think it's really necessary. I all likelihood, the download is identical to XPS 8900.

Unfortunately no. Acer doesn't provide a public API for generating downloads.
