    - Check your PM.
    - Unpack the zipfile, don't mind the readme text files
    - Move it to /sources in your Windows 7 installer
    - Use the installer as usual

    Yes, any type of key usually works with those. Only thing is that you have to add a certificate, as described in the first link. If you use the folder I sent you, you don't have to mess around with that, it gets installed automatically.

    When using the Helioc download tool I am receiving the error message

    "Product ID 87 is unsupported".

    I was able to download the Windows ISO on another computer and received this message when trying to copy it to a USB stick.

    "Item not found." "This is no longer located in (Folder location where downloaded".).

    It seems to have disappeared.

    I downloaded a Windows ISO. I want to copy it to a USB to bring to another computer.

    I am receiving the following error message:

    Item Not Found
    Could not find this item.
    This is no longer located in (Folder). Verify the item's location and try again.

    The file is listed in the Quick Access folder but when I go to the folder itself it is not listed.

    If it's not in the actual folder where you downloaded it, maybe it didn't finish. I'd try to download it again or search for it on the filesystem, maybe it's somewhere else. I wouldn't rely on the windows quick access...

    Also, maybe compare the checksum of the file if it's available where you download it from, to make sure it's complete and not corrupted.

    The administrator from the download site said that the server was down. It might not have completed.

    Is it ok to post the link to the file here so someone that follows me can do the same thing?

    Done.

    This works only if your computer was sold with Windows 7, this is not a crack.

    Works with about 80 brands, including most of the big ones. If the installer can't find the correct file you'll end up with an unactivated installation.

    Just remember that I did not create this folder, I downloaded it years ago from MDL. All I've done is deleting all brand specific logo pictures, that's why \MULTIBRAND_OEM'S is empty.

    - Unpack the zipfile, don't mind the readme text files
    - Copy the $OEM$ folder to /sources in your Windows 7 installer, see picture
    - Use the installer as usual
