Windows 7 Release Candidate – Official Download Link

Microsoft Windows 7 has been creating a steady buzz with the release of beta. The Release Candidate has also been making the rounds in torrent trackers.

Microsoft has made an official Windows 7 RC available for download.

It looks like Microsoft took enough precautions to handle the load from a surge of beta downloaders wanting to try Windows 7 like the last time.


This download link is going to be available through July 2009 so you can opt to wait out the initial rush to download. Both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 are available in five languages: English, French, German, Spanish and Japanese.

Sign in with your Windows Live ID and fill the form presented to download it. If you already did this for the beta you wouldn’t have to.

The license key you are presented with is valid until June 1 2010.

Download Windows 7 RC

I let the download begin at home this morning and will try to install it in a spare machine this evening. Good luck if you are trying the same.

    I am downloading now, I am not a big fan of Vista so I am hopping that this runs and works a little better. I still like XP Pro over Vista.
