Just got my semester info and it seems the Pro version is available on MSDNAA. Both 32 and 64bit versions available for download.

Ditto, got it last week. I believe you can install Windows 7 Professional on both computers (PC and laptop). You have to contact your school's Program Administrator to obtain 2nd CDkey.

I just downloaded another copy. Didn't ask me anything it just gave me the key. Of course mine is through ieee membership so that may be different.

Ahh, I haven't re-download same edition so I might try later on.

Any difference in this and the RTM?

You will get a different key for each version you download. 32bit has its own and 64 has its own. Once they release a SP1 version that one will have its own key as well.

difference in what?

MSDNAA =MSDN Academic Alliance is just MS software for college students that are enrolled in specific classes

The Windows 7 Ultimate that I'm running now that I got off of MSDNAA had the "RC" included in the title of the download and the "Evaluation Copy Build 7100" shows up in the corner on my desktop.

This Windows 7 Pro download does not have the "RC" in the title. Not sure if that means this is the real deal rather than just another evaluation copy but I guess I'll be finding out very soon.

I'll post back once it's installed.

I don't see it on my campus's site. I don't know if we have an Academic Agreement with MS or not. :confused:

For my school you have to be registered in a computer science course to be able to access MSDNAA. They send you an email with the log in info after the add/drop period ends. If you are a member of certain clubs like IEEE you have access as long as you're a member.

Check the computer science page for your school and see if you find any info on it.

Installed and running, no more RC :)

It's got to be some sort of placebo effect... but I swear this is even faster than the RC :)
