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

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi,

is it known when Windows 7 ISO downloads will be available again? I need a Windows 7 Home Premium X64 German OEM image.

 

Edit: I found a working ISO, nevermind

I think it is currently unavailable to download, or I'm doing something wrong?

Correct. A few Office 2010 downloads are still available from links that were created yesterday, which will have disappeared by the end of day. But Windows 7 is already gone for the month. Depending on when exactly MS shuts down the downloads API after Windows 7 end-of-life, downloads might or might not come back on February 1.

At Midnight Tonight January 10th starts.
Microsoft ends support for Windows 7 Editions
Does this mean these generated iso links won't be able to be done anymore?
is it pretty much to late?

For a definite answer, you might want to contact Microsoft and ask them when they plan to shut down the downloads API. Everything else is speculation.

(My personal speculation is that it's too late. But let's wait and see what happens on 1 February.)

@Jan Krohn Hello Jan, what's the difference between the 2018 edition of Windows 7 (escrow) and the older ones witch everyone seems to want instead? Does the 2018 edition not work correctly or is it worse somehow? Thanks!

The recent iso's are badly updated:
- more than one CU integrated for w/e reason
- all the telemetry is most probably in there
- the size of a single index iso is 5GB+, which is roughly the same as a 64-bit AIO with integrated updates, .net 4.8, visual c++ runtimes and directx
The common joke is those iso's were made by newbie interns and are really highly NOT recommended.

Just download a clean media refresh iso, use simplix updatepack on it(download abbodi's addons and put them next to the updatepack if you want). You'll achieve a much better result.

They are indeed badly and unprofessionally made. Looks like somebody installed Windows 7,  installed updates, syspreped it and added it back to the WIM file. I would use the original Windows 7 ISOs from 2011.

yup.  the aug 2018 w7 isos were truly oversized (overrated) and badly made

Win7 has already past EOL yesterday 1/14/2020

Soo like how can I download Iso for m windows 7

The last Windows 7 links will disappear from the cache in the next few hours. If the edition that you need is not available now, the next chance to get it will be next month, starting March 1. Unless Microsoft takes down the API by then.

When can I download a new version of 8.1 because  am using windows 7 so when can I download windows 8

Windows 8.1 is always available for download. There is no restriction like for Win 7.
