If you look at when that was dated(late 2008) and for what build number(7000) you can understand why it likely won't work on anything more recent like the RCs to start with.

Why on earth you would even consider installing this piece of c*a* is really beyond me. Then they wonder why you got problems no one else has. You are installing trouble with this and I would not advise it

Very nice Jimbo.....I sometimes the US would pull it's head out of it's *ss. You can get a bottle of vodka for $3 and go kill someone in your car but can't smoke some good herb (legally) and kick back on your computer. Have a good one.

My product key registered to me with my live ID has been used by me (and me only) with builds 7000 beta through 7100 RC with no issues.

End of story.

Windows 7 Release Candidate Announcement

Thank you very much for your help in testing the Windows 7 Beta. Your feedback is invaluable in helping make Windows 7 a high quality operating system. With your help, we have reached the next major milestone on the journey to Windows 7: the Release Candidate (RC).

-
Today (April 30) the RC is available to MSDN subscribers and TechNet Plus subscribers.
-
On Tuesday, May 5 (PST), the RC will be available to everyone via our Customer Preview Program. As with the Beta, the Windows 7 RC Customer Preview Program is a broad public program that offers the RC free to anyone who wants to download it. It will be available at least through June 30, 2009, with no limits on the number of downloads or product keys available.

So you don’t need rush to make sure you get your copy. When you’re ready to download the RC, it’ll be waiting for you.


To get the RC please use one of the following links:
-
Developers
-
IT Pros/Microsoft Partners
-
Tech Enthusiasts/Consumers


IMPORTANT: If you are running Windows 7 Beta you’ll need to back up your data (preferably on an external device) and then do a clean install of the Windows 7 Release Candidate. After installing Windows 7, you will need to reinstall applications and restore your files. If you need help with the installation process, please see the Installation Instructions.

If you’re running Windows Vista, you can install Window 7 RC without having to back up and reinstall your programs and data. But to be on the safe side, please do backup your data before you start.

Please note: All users of the Windows 7 Release Candidate (including Windows Vista users who have upgraded to the Release Candidate) must do a clean installation of Windows 7 RTM. Please keep this is mind as you consider downloading the Release Candidate as opposed to waiting for the general availability release.

Thanks again for your help in reaching this important milestone. We hope that you will join us in testing the RC and finishing Windows 7!

But the fact is:

Your Key is just 1 of the 10 keys that are given out.

Many people are using your key, it's all good.

The story continues...
