Windows 7: 7600 up and running

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

Same here. I loaded up Ultimate as I expect to have a legal key from TechNet within the next 30 days or so. Of course, I expect to install another build before then as well, since what I have now is clearly not the final RTM code, albeit very close and running pretty great, btw.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Nice lee, I am glad to see your not having problems.

I am going to see if I can find this from another file hosting site like megashares, or rapidshare, Megaupload.

All the best~

Micrsoft Windows
Version 6.1 (Build 7600)

At present there is no Expiration Date because I do not have a key code for this build (haven't tried any of the RC keys, don't think they will work).

The bottom right of the screen does not have the build number on the screen as do the RC builds.

Loaded Microsoft Security Essentials and no virus were detected/found, so it would appear no nasties were downloaded with this built.

The following is the built that was downloaded:


Thus far no problems.

For you none believers:
Very misleading title to this thread because as of right now there is no RTM release.

No, unfortunately, it's not the truth. While this may in fact be the final RTM, no RTM build has yet been signed off on.

Yes, lots of places are calling it RTM, but there may well be later 7600 builds (16385, 16386, etc..).

So it is correct to say it is an RTM build, it is not the "Official" RTM (yet).

Vista x64 / 7 X64

Personally, I do not believe this is the final build string of Microsoft’s next operating system. When Windows Vista was released, the first part of its build string was 6000.16386. This build of Windows 7 as mentioned is 7600.16384. To ensure application compatibility, the build string needs to align the sub-string to the same as that of Vista’s build string. All it would take is two rebuilds of the final build to create this, but this is why I believe we haven’t quite reached the end milestone of this development cycle yet.

I think you may need to resort to the questionable activation hack, or else do the rearming thing to get 120 days, plenty until the actual release.

You can use the RC keys to activate the build in the same way you could activate build 7264 but it will result in you having the expiry date and the evaluation watermark again.

Hey, that's not a bad thing actually. I might just do that rather than keep rearming as I was planning. I just need to get to October anyway, so if there are no side-effects other than Death in March, no biggie.

Thanks for the tip!

Windows 7 RC Build7100

I do not think that build 7600 is RTM. As stated in the article below they are not admitting to it.
