Windows Vista RC1 – Product Key and Download Link

In IT, Technical, Tools, Windows XP on September 14, 2006 at 12:51 pm

Before they run out, go grab the latest Windows Vista RC1 (Release Candidate 1) product key and the download link.

All you have to do is,

  • Navigate to this link.
  • Sign in with your Passport.
  • Answer few basic questions.
  • Then you’ll be presented with the product key page along with the links to the download page. You might need to install the download manager as it would help downloading this massive 2.5 GB file.

(Hint: Refresh the product key page again to get another product key. It seems like a bug on the page that it allows you to grab 2 keys before it realizes)

You have to burn the ISO image to a DVD before installing it on to your (test/spare) machine.

Grab ’em before they are gone.

Good Luck and Enjoy Vista (without any cost!!!).

Link: Windows Vista RC1

Latest Update: Alternatively you can download RC1 from this location as well.

Windows Vista Get ready site has also opened up the RC1 download. Grab it before it goes.

  1. After the two tries I did to get the extra key, the following came up:

    —- snip —-
    Thank you for participating in the Microsoft Windows Vista Customer Preview Program.

    You have received the maximum number of Product Keys available for this program.
    Note: Windows Vista RC1 can be installed and activated on up to 10 PCs with one Product Key.
    —- snip —-

    So I guess it’s not a bug but rather a company policy. That makes 20 PCs with the two keys. After that the rootkits kick in.

  2. Thank you for your explanation.

    I’m not sure whether it’s a bug or a company policy. If its a company policy then they should have issued 2 keys at a time rather than issuing it at 2 different times as many people won’t even know this trick. But we don’t know the fact.

    I’m glad that it worked for you.
