As you can see from the thread, that link which you reposted, doesn't help.

I did - before it was edited to add a link to the official downloads.

So, no need for dodgy workarounds or potential piracy. smile

Are you trying to say that I am offering "dodgy" software or attempting to use this forum to distribute pirated material?

Your link is only of any use to the tiny minority who have previously purchased retail versions. It is of no use whatsoever to the vast majority of users.

Do the SHA hashes match? It would be good for users to avoid having to pay for software which they have already bought without the interference of holier than thou crusaders who obviously have no idea of the difficulties presented to the vast majority of OEM users where something like a drive failure occurs.

As an OEM code can't be reused, that hardly matters does it?

You have no idea do you. An OEM key can be re-used as long as it's used on the machine that carries that key. That is why M$ offered the DR direct download service in the first place.

Yes. I am saying that redistributing copyright material without the copyright owner's permission is what is commonly referred to as "software piracy". There are web sites that trade in such material, but I'm not convinced that this should be one.

If you have a licence key for a version of Windows that can be reinstalled then you can download the software from Microsoft.

I have already offered you a solution to your problem. Contact Microsoft and ask them for permission to redistribute this copyright material; it won't cost you a penny (if they are happy for you to do so).

So why do you suppose they don't offer it now? Do they have the right to control redistribution of their copyright material or not? It's a pretty simple question.

"M$" - that's really clever; however did you think of that?

Then I suggest that you report the offending post along with Batboy's link to the site owners.

No need. I'm guessing that you decided I was correct as you have withdrawn the offer.
