How to receive a valid Windows 7 key from Microsoft

January 12, 2009

Step 1 : Logon to http://technet.microsoft.com (click on Sign in in the upper right corner)

Step 2 : Copy (Don’t CLICK IT!) one of the links below to the address bar and press enter :

32-Bit key : https://www.microsoft.com/betaexperience/scripts/gcs.aspx?Product=tn-win7-32-ww&LCID=1033 (don’t click, Copy and Paste!)

64-bit key : https://www.microsoft.com/betaexperience/scripts/gcs.aspx?Product=tn-win7-64-ww&LCID=1033 (don’t click, Copy and Paste!)

Tip : You can use the 64-bit during a 32-bit installation and a 32-bit key during a 64-bit installation (it seems that getting a 64-bit key is faster!)

Step 3 : If you receive the error below, just press F5 to refresh (I had to refresh more then 10 times before I received the key), if you’re being redirected  then you didn’t follow the steps 1 and 2 correctly!

If you followed the steps correct you should see your key (depending on your version it could also say Windows 7 Beta 32-bit Product Key -) ). Have fun! windows7_publicbetakey

UPDATE : Notice that you’re now viewing this page on another server and that’s the reason the old comments are not available at the moment (they’re not lost/erased!).
