    I'm from Romania and I sent a pm (manual activation) for ESET NOD32 about a week ago, but I'm still waiting to receive the license...

    Oh and it's two disks, 32 and 64-bit installers.

    Thanks again Wilders and Microsoft! :)

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know how the Win 7 prizes are being shipped in the US?

    USPS - UPS or Fedex or something else?

    Thanks

    Got my Windows 7 today also.

    One more time, thanks to Wilders and Microsoft.

    I emailed Microsoft about installation and just want to reassure myself here, I'm running Windows 7 Home right now, if I want to install Ultimate in a clean install with this disk, I just do a regular installation, right? There isn't anything special I have to do?

    I installed the Windows 7 Home clean over my Vista installation and it worked fine, so if there isn't any different steps to take, I should be able to pull it off installing the Windows Ultimate.

    Same. :D I'm quite happy.

    Says "Promotional Disc" on it, but I hope that doesn't mean its a trial. :rolleyes:

    It just means it's not for sale/resale.

    Win arrived today, thanks, but I have 1 question. What type of Win is it, like OEM, upgrade or full version, so can it be used only on 1 PC or can it be used like "forever"? :)

    EDIT: Well according to ID X15-60567-01, it should be full retail copy, so it be used on multiple PC like when you buy a new one to replace the old one. Just want to be sure.

    Yes, it is a full and complete version as if you bought a boxed version at a computer store. The only restriction is that it is NFR (not for resale).

    OK thanks, now I have to wonder, if I am going to buy Windows 8 once it is released or wait for Windows 9. :D

    I won Windows 7 Pro but in the mail today I received 2 disks- One Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit and one Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Can I install one on my desktop and the other on my laptop?

    Also, on my laptop I have Vista basic 32 bit with 2 gb ram installed. Can I just install the Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit over the top of it, or clean install?

    Thanks again!

    I can answer the license part... You've won a single license to use Windows 7 Ultimate. The media has been provided so that you can use either the 32-bit or 64-bit version. (Professional was upgraded to Ultimate by Microsoft at the time of the prize awards.)

    I won Win7, but it has not arrived as yet. Should I be concerned? o_O
    Guess I am impatient (but also very excited). Hope it gets here soon.

    Congrats to Everyone who won! I had a surgery & thought I joined the forum for the draw lol so with the medication for pain and the timing, I guess it wasn't my good fortune! Nothing like thinking you entered a draw when you actually didn't. I hope they have more draws and congratulations for Wilders Forum. Hugs Silk40dd

    Got my copy of Win 7 today also. Installed it on my computer but most of the hardware and stuff wasn't compatible so went back to XP. Looks like a build project coming up in the future. :D Hope where I activated it on this computer but didn't use it I can activate it on that one instead whenever I get it.

    Once again thanks to Paul and staff for the excellent give away. :thumb:

    Hi Threedog (fellow Canadian).
    Did your Win 7 arrive by Canada Post or UPS?

    Got my Win 7 disc during last week, very happy and thanks again to Wilders and Microsoft and Paragon as I also won Drive Backup!

    Also, surprised the version was Ultimate when expecting Professional!

    THanks and cheers from Ireland!

    I notice that Rmuffler's now a former Eset Moderator — who's doing manual activations now?

    I've asked ESET to give us a new point person for this, and, I'll update the instructions on the license screen as soon as we know who they chose.


    Edit: ESET Moderator foneil will now handle the manual activation requests.
