the region you buy it from, is the language you get. prices are often higher in non US regions.
Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise can switch easily between 35 display languages.
Windows 7 language packs are available for computers that are running Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Language packs info @ Microsoft.com

I want to know why they make the iso's only available through a subscription, damnit. Without the key, it's just demo software. And if you bought a legitimate copy and the integrated service pack iso has come out, why isn't the non-TechNet subscriber eligible for it? After all, the actual service pack is, so why not the iso?
This restriction is very petty and annoying.
You can grab the standalone iso and exes straight from MS right here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=c3202ce6-4056-4059-8a1b-3a9b77cdfdda
what is that ISO? is it a full windows installer, or just an SP1 upgrade disk.
That's just the stand alone Service Pack 1 .exe Mussles.
Also renewed my damn subscription, and as I figured, they have not given me a new set of keys
raaaaaaage. go complain, ask for new keys.
thanks erocker could not find that .My question is will Microsoft take money for those so called free subs a few years ago,I`m asking i had 250 missing from my account yesterday .I just hope my card # was not stolen ,I had 667 and only bought Powrdvd and technet roughly 325 but still had just over 300 in the account,now im missing some.I used cash all week for food.Also tried to get hr block tax software from Best buy for 33 bucks.The only times i used the card.
Yea no kidding Mussels! Crap, if I had known that I would not have renewed the dang thing.
I have to wonder if it is due to the fact that MS has changed the key amounts since my other subscription? When I subscribed a little over a year ago, everyone got 10 keys, and now the pro version only gets 5.
This might be plain old theft and it won't be from TechNet either.
If money has "disappeared" like that from your account, you should get onto your bank straight away. See where the money went and make a claim if you don't recognize the transactions.
Hey can I join? I renewed my sub 2 weeks ago... Well my old one's been out for a while.. but anyway I finally got my keys and it shows I'm a TechNet Pro Subscriber again today!.. But what's with only getting 5 keys? Didn't we use to get 10?..
Yup, we did. Microsoft reduced it to 5 due to "piracy".
Wow.. hehe do they really think that there logic is sound?... do they think giving half the keys will stop half the piracy?... Do they know they are pirates...lol Yay let's punish the actual paying customers...
Yeah, unfortunately big business and basic logic don't usually go together.
Renewed! Though they were quite pushy about it. Weekly automated phone calls, paper letters with predated invoices, both months before my expiration. The least used method... was email!? Anyhoo...
I also use my Technet sub for product evaluation, imagine that. Saw Multipoint Server 2011 in the new downloads list. Looks sweet! Been following multi-user/single-box solutions for over 10 years now. Most have been very limited, or very expensive.
Anyone here try it yet? I don't have enough spare parts at the moment to try a physical test. Maybe fire up a VM later.
Jizzler, did you get a new set of keys with the renewal? Do you have 5 or 10 keys for each edition of Windows?
Still have a max of 5 for each edition of Windows 7, except for Enterprise which uses a MAK.
but are they new keys?
Yes, they are.
Well, judging by stinger's response, they're not giving out new keys with a renewal, either. One to watch out for.
Note that when mine expired, I did not renew it, so I'm not speaking from experience.
Ah, well I let mine expire. After dozens of phone calls and emails over a month or so, I got a great deal. I guess I got a whole new account.
Asking if I got five new keys in addition to the ones I've already claimed? Then no, max is 5 including past claimed keys.
I had 2 claimed before renewal, 1 after:
Oh well, even after the key reduction and no additional keys with a renewal, this is still pretty good. I remember paying $125 for just a Windows 2000 + Windows 2000 Advance Server Action Pack, way back in the day.
so in other words, renewal is worthless. dont get it.
get a new sub instead.
No problems just a glitch in the account...Whew
