Hi

I have just noticed on the Vista website that RC1 has closed, do you have to be a TechNet subscriber to get RC2?

RC2 was available some time ago as a public download, it closed after three days as the download limit was already reached then. Don't know if you can still get it via TechNet/MSDN, though...

I think it is actually still possible to get RC1 from Microsoft (even though it's officially closed), but not RC2.

Get serial keys by going to http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/P ... ndowsvista% and logging in with a Live ID that you haven't used to get 2 keys already.

Get the download by going to http://download.windowsvista.com/previe ... wnload.htm

Yes, RC1 is still available "officially" but RC2 is not. RC2 is on the AbyssUnderground server, though.

edit: Here are the download links for German and Japanese Vista RC1:

The release candidate (RC) program has been closed pending the public release of Windows Vista in late January 2007.
