    Enterprise Editions on EES

    Last time I visited/downloaded from the MS VLSC all my sites had the Enterprise editions of W7 and W8 available, but on a recent visit I noticed that these were no longer available to download.

    Did MS put them up by mistake, or decide to withdraw them? If so, are any current (or future) installations no longer licensed? I haven't spotted any "this copy of Windows is not licensed" notices, but then it's only on a handful of machines - including the one I'm typing this on, which still says activated!

    Thanks folks!

    Silly me, expecting Windows 7/8 to be under, y'know, Windows!

    At least that means I can start my VM creation masterplan with ENT versions tomorrow.

    Enterprise is a feature of software assurance. You only get Pro without - at least that's it for Win 7, haven't bothered learning the rules/editions for Win 8. (Of course EES include SA)
