Windows 7: Windows 7 RTM – Go Get It

Windows 7 RTM – Go Get It

This is it people. Windows 7 RTM is available for download from MSDN & TechNet sites! If you have a MSDN subscription you can get Windows 7 RTM in English. On October 1st, the remaining languages will be released, for more information read - Windows 7 RTM Available Today for MSDN & TechNet Subscribers. You can also get the Windows 7 SDK  and the RTM version of the Windows API Code Pack for .NET Framework.

Make sure you get them all today to start testing your applications, and to make sure your applications are ready for Windows 7 RTM! Now is the time to work on your applications to make sure they are Windows 7 compatible. On top of that, you can use new Windows 7 features such as the Sensor and Location Platform, Taskbar, Libraries, Multi-Touch, the new Graphics APIs, the Windows Ribbon, and many other important and exciting Windows 7 technologies to make your application shine on Windows 7.

New Windows 7 Training Kit for Developers - Get it NOW!

To help you get your application on Windows 7 as soon as possible, we updated the Windows 7 Training Kit for Developers for the RTM version and gave it a new look and better functionality. You can still find all existing topics such as: Taskbar, Sensor and Location, Libraries and Shell, DirectX, Multi-touch, Ribbon, etc. No dev was left behind! The kit is built for both native Win32 C++ developers and .NET developers, so now most topics have multiple labs.We also added 6 new Application Compatibility labs: Version Checking, Data Redirection, UIPI, Installer Detection, Session 0 Isolation, and High DPI, to help you get over the most common application compatibility issues. All the topics in the training kit include additional information like whitepapers, links to MSDN, and links to videos from Channel 9.

 Updated Windows Topic Area on Channel 9

We also gave the Windows topic area on Channel 9 a brand new look and functionality to help you to better choose the right Windows 7 content you need. In the new Windows topic area for Channel 9, you can choose from three main topic areas:

While we hope you find all this helpful, this is only the start! We are working on more new and exciting content that will be shipped in the following weeks, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, here is some additional useful information:

  • The Windows page on MSDN is the one-stop shop for Windows client developers
  • At Develop for Windows 7, you can find all the information you need about specific technologies like Direct2D, Taskbar, Sensor and Location, Power Shell 2, Windows Ribbon, and many more
  • Windows Application Compatibility is the one page you want to visit to make sure your application runs properly on Windows 7; it includes content and tools to test and fix many application compatibility issues. Directly accessible from that page, is the Windows 7 Application Quality Cookbook
  • Also still very relevant, is the Windows Vista Application Compatibility Cookbook--most Windows 7 compatibility issues are the direct result of the changes introduced in the Windows Vista timeframe, and are included as topics in this Cookbook (UAC, Session 0 Service Isolation, IE Protected Mode, etc.), which is a great starting point for addressing these issues
  • New Windows 7 videos on the Channel 9 Windows page explore specific features and technologies, and are great “windows” to the Windows engineering team
  • As always, the E7 blog is an amazing source of the engineering back story behind Windows 7
  • Last, but not least, for IT-Pro, we have our SPRINGBOARD SERIES, and edge on TechNet
And, of course, continue to watch for new posts.

win 7 7600-16385

Its so easy to succeed when u have a great product like win seven.
6.1.7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255) this is the official build number. I was runing it all along so i have not seen much of a difference. But we have a winner yea

Otherwise, your browser uses the cached version of the page (which shows 49)

When will 7 RTM be made available to MSDNAA? I asked earlier and got the 14th, but looked elsewhere and got told the 21st. Is there an official date?
