Windows 7 Enterprise Trial Download

Microsoft's next operating system Windows 7 will be released on October 22. Users who participated in the beta test may have already downloaded, installed and used the Windows 7 Release Candidate which can be used for more than six months without issues before a decision needs to be made to either upgrade to the full version or install a different version of the operating system instead on the computer.

Some users like MSDN or Technet subscribers are also able to download the Windows 7 RTM release to test the final version of the operating system extensively. The RTM version is identical to the retail version which will be released by Microsoft on October 22.

Users who want to try out the final version of Windows 7 but do not have access to a version through one of the partner programs can now download a Windows 7 Enterprise trial version that is good for 90 days of testing directly from Microsoft.

The trial version is the full Enterprise version of Windows 7 and will not require a product key as it is already embedded in the download and will be applied automatically during installation of the operating system.

Windows 7 Enterprise Trial needs to be activated within 10 days after installation. Failure to do so will shut down the operating system automatically every hour until Windows 7 is activated. The same will happen after the 90-day trial. It should also be noted that it is not possible to continue using the operating system or purchasing the retail version as Microsoft is not selling Windows 7 Enterprise to end users.

Windows 7 Enterprise Trial downloads are provided as 32-bit and 64-bit editions in the five supported languages English, German, French, Japanese and Spanish. Help is provided at the Windows 7 Enterprise 90-day Trial FAQ website.

Update: The Windows 7 Enterprise trial is still offered at the TechNet Evaluation Center. It allows you to test the version for 90 days without entering a product key. The enterprise version is available in English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish only, and not in other languages.

Please note that you need to click on the previous versions link first as the frontpage is now highlighting the Enterprise trial download of Windows 8 only.

There you can download Windows 7 Enterprise trial just like before.

      Microsoft Corporation thought that Window 7 will not be as free as other OS. XP & Vista leaks Non-Genuine software but, Win 7 is very strict.
