Windows 7: Wanting to try Windows 7

Wanting to try Windows 7

I have been wanting to try Windows 7 and I know I am a bit late but is the RTM still available from Microsoft or some 3rd party site?

I have a 32 and 64 bit key from when the beta came out, would I be able to use that on the RTM?

Hello Neoglyphix, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but no you cannot use a beta key on a RTM (retail) version of Windows 7.

The RTM is available at your local retail store. If you have a friend that has a copy of Windows 7, then you can use their Windows 7 installation disc to only install and not activate on your computer for a up to 120 days trial period.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I think what he was trying to say was, is the 7600 build still available before he goes out and purchases the RTM. So he can trial it. Isnt the 7600 build good till march??
