post ACM.org MSDNAA Access for 19$US (Windows 7)

Post by Oblada on Mon Sep 14, 2009 5:07 pm

This is for students only!

So if anyone is interested in getting access to the MSDNAA website this is the cheapest route. You get eight copies of Windows 7 Professional, plus all the other software available.

SlickDeals user Wikipost posted this (all credit should go to him):

ACM signup provides EIGHT licenses (4 English, 2 Chinese, 2 Spanish, users are reporting that they are interchangeable).

you can join ACM for $ 19 for a 1year membership with MSDN AA software access (same software)

http://campus.acm.org/public/quickjoin/interim.cfm --- student membership form --- $ 19

- sign up and ACM will send you log-in information
- then you will have to wait till ACM lets you opt-in for MSDNAA membership --- it will take approx. 1 to 2 days --- to check if you can "opt-in", log in to "MyACM" and under the "My Services" tab you will find a light blue box saying "Access ACM’s Student Academic Initiative (SAI) Programs: Developer Academic Alliance (formerly MSDN AA), Sun Academic Initiative, and CA Academic Initiative" --- click on "Developer Academic Alliance" link in this box and if ACM has already processed your payment, you will be able to "opt-in" (however, you do not have to wait for the payment processed email ACM will sent you)
- once you "opt-in", MSDNAA will send you their log-in info within 24 hours (check your junk mail folder - my email was buried in junk)
- once you got your MSDNAA login info, you will be able to log-in here https://msdn01.e-academy.com/elms/Security/Login.aspx?campus=ACM and download your software


Once you have your credentials for the MSDNAA website here are the steps to download Win7 (thanks to edifonzo):

1. Log on to MSDNAA (find the acm.org link, lazy basterd)
2. Find the following programs: Windows 7 (x86) English, Windows 7 (x86) French, Windows 7 (x64) English, Windows 7 (x64) French.
3. Add them to your shopping basket.
4. Head to checkout.
5. It will say something like "click on software for more info", click on "download", it will not start downloading but will take you to another page.
6. Copy key, past to notepad. SAVE

7. Repeat for other programs.


USERS REPORTING THE MSDN AA EMAILS GOING TO THEIR SPAM/TRASH BOXES SO CHECK THERE!

FAQ:

Q. Can students keep these tools after they graduate?
A. Yes, this license is perpetual and nontransferable. You don’t have to uninstall the tools, but the stipulation of “academic use only” does not change. From MSDN AA Website (thanks to: i6s1)

Q: How long does it take to receive the log-on details?
A: 1-2 days.

Q: Do you have to be a student to signup?
A: They started asking for student information (Sep 9,2009)
In order to take advantage of ACM's Student Academic Initiative (SAI) Program, you must verify your student status by providing ACM with the following information:

* The name of your Faculty Advisor
* Your Student Identification Number

Please click on 'My Student Profile' and complete all the required fields.
Q: How many Windows 7 licenses do you get?
A: Eight... two (Eng/Fre)for the x86 and two (Eng/Fre) for x64. On Sep 9,2009 they added another 2 chinese keys, but should work with English nonetheless. On Sep 10, 2009 two more keys were added (Spanish). Users are reporting that the keys are interchangeable. Meaning that you can use keys from different languages/bit versions to whatever edition of W7 you want.

Q: Where's Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint? Will they be available?
A: Probably not.

Q: OMG THEY HAVE WIN7 ULTIMATE! Why is everyone downloading the Pro?
A: Win7 Ultimate is a Release Candidate, meaning a beta. MSDN AA has never posted the ultimate retail.

Q: Should I install 32bit or 64bit Windows 7?
A: If you have a 64bit CPU and more than 4GB RAM then you should definately use the 64bit, otherwise 32bit might be a better choice. Read this article for more infomation: LINK.

Q: Can I install my software on two computers at once? (thanks to rvs007)
A: Yes, as long as you are the owner of both computers and both are being used for instructional purposes. NOTE: If you require another key for a product you must contact the PA (program administrator) at your school. Your PA's contact email information can be found in the support page. Click on the Support button above. Also, friends, family and colleagues not currently enrolled in a course that is part of an MSDNAA department are not allowed to access or use the software available from this website.


Note that you cannot upgrade MS Vista to Windows 7 Professional, you will need to do a clean/fresh install.
