Written By Sam on 6 May 2009

If you are the one like me who were waiting to try out the Windows 7 RC(RC or Release Candidate is the last development milestone before the final product.) then you can download it from the Microsoft Website. You can easily register at the Microsoft website to download the Windows 7 RC ISO image. The Windows 7 RC will be available until July 2009 and the product keys are also not limited. So you can download it leisurely.


The Windows 7 RC will be available in only one edition – Windows 7 Ultimate with English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish languages in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. You can download the ISO image of Windows 7 RC, burn it on to a disc and install it on your computer.

The important thing that you need to keep in your mind is that Windows 7 RC will shutdown your computer every two hours from March 1, 2010 and it will be expired on June 1, 2010. Also don’t forget to read the Release Notes and Things to Know before installing Windows 7 RC.
