    6933.winmain.081020-1842

    @frwil, well newest build would be nice, but i dont think this will be possible just now.

    @colinzim, should just be a matter of time as this build is given away for PDC attendee's, so it will be on the net sooner or later

    But when :p I'm checking torrent sites and RS, but nothing so far. Maybe none of the attendees wants to rip/upload the release.

    Yeah, on pretty fast bots too, got the 32bit one with about 500kb/s average. Sweet stuff.

    Can't wait to evaluate!

    (that rhymes too)

    Alright, got it installed and working fine, it even came with some Intel GRFX test drivers, so glass was enabled on first boot. Everything seems pretty snappy and even snappier with indexing and system restore disabled. I've imported a cert that works fine with bios SLIC table on Vista, but no Vista serial is accepted in Windows 7. Maybe a time stop trick like in Windows 2008 will work. I'll report on that later.

    I can confirm simply deleting c:\windows\system32\slui.exe seems to work.

    slmgr.vbs -dlv shows the same amount of minutes after 10 mins of waiting. Wouldnt it be nice if everything was this easy :eek:

    Just rebooted and the minutes remaining is still the same.

    My remaining rearm is 3. Did you use one already?

    Now all we need is a way around the "time bomb" my install is set to expire on 8/2/2009 12:59:59, which is long enough for the first real beta's, but still wold be nice to find a way to change that date or get rid of it, or better yet find a key that can be used to activate in combination with SLIC/certs.

    Yes, ran the command - not too many worries about cracking,

    deleting c:\windows\system32\slui.exe DID NOT WORK - counting down - I think it fixes on reboot
    6933.winmain.081020-1842 will be out in a month anyways.

    This build is missing ALOT !

    The OLD Windows 7 M1 Build 6519 has TABBED EXPLORER BROWSING (My Computer : Tabs) (Same as IE7-8)

    This Windows 7 M3 Build 6801 doesn't

    I used slmgr /cpky and /upk and when I run /dlv it says error and on desktop I have not genuine warning in corner, but It still runs good, I will report, if something goes wrong or not

    //edit: After some restarts, it has restored the key and starts counting down, I tried deleting slui, but it started counting down too.

    Installing certificate and slic work, only product key not, so in final version, if nothing changes, we can get key from notebooks as with vista and everything should work!
