    You can also rearm every 30 days so you get like 90 days trial before reinstalling.

    It's closer to 120, if you do the re-arms on the last day or so. 30 days from install, then rearm = 30 again, 30 days later again rearm = 30 again, 30 days later again rearm = 30 again.

    We'll have SLP keys and certs by then so your safe! :)

    yep sorry forgot about first 30 days.

    So 120 days trial, so not bad before reinstalling.

    Hello,

    My company has an MSDN subscription.
    If I request a Windows 7 key through MSDN, will my company receive an invoice or will be charged for this key ?

    Thanks !

    Well either it's free, either you can't access to the download section (if your subscription is not high enough), but you won't pay for it.

    Ofcourse NOT, MSDN subs was already paid for
    You need to access site (or ask the guys that have access) and get the key (or ask your guys if they are willing to give it to you - nothing personal, but I know I would not do that)

    Yeah but you never know if you can fully trust others, if something goes wrong it's blacklisted. And basically it wasn't meant for personal use but only for the company PCs.

    Each key can be used 10 times. 10 x 10 = 100 meaning you can install Windows 7 100 times.

    Thanks for your answer but I don't have that folder. I only see th following folders:

    Internet Explorer, SoftwareProtectionPlatform, SystemCertificates and Windows.

    I am using the Windows 7 Enterprise Edition 32 Bits.
