Default Windows 7, beta, RC, RTM

Okay, so I understand the differences between them.

My Windows 7 beta has expired, is there anyway to upgrade to RC without having to wipe everything?

If possible, is there any way to just 'fix' the licensing? I just don't want to reinstall all my programs


Thanks

Doh !!

I'm an idiot.


If anyone had trouble with this as well, just post here and I'll tell ya what to do.


It was so easy that I missed it :P

As far as I know the download link for windows 7 RC is closed. It has been open for a number of months now. See this for more information. That being said, if you know anyone that has a copy of the RC then you can talk to them, and get a different Product key and then install it on your own computer. The other option is to keep turning your date back so that you can use the beta until 7 comes out.

Sorry.

Nope!

I'm actually all set thanks, I was just being dumb and didn't realize I had to go to their site to upgrade.

I had already downloaded Beta, so I had a key that let me upgrade to RC.

Thanks!
