Windows 7 Release Candidate


Thanks for downloading the Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC). This is the last big step toward finishing Windows 7. With your help, our engineers can check the fixes and changes they made based on Beta tests.

We rely on people like you to use the software before it’s commercially released. So if you haven’t already installed the RC, please go ahead. Having thousands of people use the software helps us test thousands of hardware and software combinations—a key to making things work great for you.

Getting started

You don’t need to do anything special to help with the testing. All you need to do is use the RC, and your PC will send information to our engineers.

IMPORTANT: If you are using the Windows 7 Beta, you will need to do a clean installation of the Release Candidate. The Installation Instructions will help you get started. Read them first to make sure you’ve got the information you need for a smooth installation.

As you use the RC, we hope you’ll discover:

It works the way you expect: it’s fast, reliable, and works with your hardware and software
It’s simple and easy to use so you can just dig in and use it right away
It helps you do the things you want to do, and new things you may not have imagined
