    The N Edition is the same thing only without WMP 12 dude. I have heard that they are also harder to activate unless you have a real key. I believe the N edition comes with IE 8 still though.

    I have downloaded the MSDN Copys and IE is missing, as well as MediaPlayer and MCE. This is a simple fix with 2 downloads from MS website prior to installing just add them to the setupcomplete.cmd to have them install.

    What I heard about N releases is that they don't includes WMP and IE. Are free from this two applications...

    nice post, that is a little odd that yours did not come with IE because the MS UK Store says that it is only lacking WMP. Oh well, good catch though.

    Found it odd to I was under the assumption that only WMP and MCE were missing.

    There are two versions of Windows 7 N.

    The first one was without IE and without WMP but got scrapped together with the Windows 7 E version. It has *clientn* in the filename.

    7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_clientn_en-us_Retail_UltimateN-GRMCNULFRER_EN_DVD.iso

    SHA1: c838b904177c5abfc594b9c5fb3f683dae8a7fd1
    CRC32: 7e852e61

    The new version is with IE and without WMP. It has *clientn-1* in the filename.

    7600.16385.090713-1255_x86fre_clientn-1_en-us_Retail_UltimateN-GRMCNULFRER_EN_DVD.iso

    Ahh, okay, so I thought, two versions. A version without IE8 and WMP12. And another just not WMP. Thanks for the clarification.

    Soon I shall see for myself, thanks.
