Windows Vista RC2 released to PUBLIC : Direct Download Link open for all :

As I had blogged earlier, Microsoft on Friday issued the second release candidate(RC2) of Windows Vista - the last public build before the next-generation operating system is released to manufacturing. As with the interim build before it, RC2 will be available to a limited number of CPP participants, beta testers, as well as TechNet and MSDN subscribers.

"Since the release of Windows Vista RC1, Microsoft has continued to receive excellent feedback that is helping to improve the overall quality and performance of the product," a company news release said. "RC2 reflects that feedback and includes important improvements in performance, application compatibility and fit and finish work. Customers should verify any outstanding issues not addressed during their RC1 testing."

BTW, Windows Vista RC2 is right now available to the general public for download at :


Download it fast before Microsoft shuts it to the general public.

After downloading, you will need to obtain a Product Key from this Windows Vista Website.

    Sorry I am NOT aware of another other links.

    Try deleting your IE cache and downloading again from the same url - it may work.
