    Hi Guys,

    Recently I have been struggling to view the MSDN Subscriber downloads as when I browse to the site I get the message that my account has been migrated to the new Visual Studio portal.

    I don't have MSDN subscription. All I want is to view the latest available ISOs and their Hashes which was possible with the old MSDN portal.

    Is there anyway I can do view the available ISOs? I don't need to be able to download them though.

    Seems even subscribers don't have access to all available ISO hashes. MS is changing the game again.

    That's bad news. Don't understand what were they losing in showing the filesnames and hashes! Hope someone finds a workaround for this soon.

    The running theory is Microsoft does not want folks to know the files names and hashes so that folks who do not have a subscription cannot confirm the file names and hashes. It is Microsoft's way of adding more fear or lack of trust in their campaign to suggest that all downloads not from Microsoft are potentially unsafe. It is a marketing ploy to add that mentality so more folks will subscribe and pay Microsoft.

    Thankfully we have plenty here on MDL who do subscribe and can easily cross compare and verify one another. ;)

    Yes, that's great at least that a lot of members have the subscription to compare against. It is just more work for everyone now. :)

    Thanks for this Tito. However, the last update of sha1 file I am seeing is from 10-06-2016? So the newly releases ISOs are not there in that file?

    I noticed this a couple of weeks back (probably soon after they made the change) and said the same thing as you but in more detail. Fully agree with you - this is a terrible move by MS. I'm still hoping it's a temporary issue caused by the migration to the VS site and that they'll come to their senses eventually.
