If you download this tool from MajorGeeks
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/microsoft_windows_iso_download_tool.html

and run it, you can legally download ISOs for not just all versions of Windows 7 but 8, 8.1 and 10 as well as Office 2007 and 2010.

If you are like me and help Senior Citizens, it is good to have a spare DVD. Of course you need a serial number if you want to install the OS from the DVD.
Rather than hoping the label on the computer remains readable, one of the first things I do is write down the serial number with the computer name. Next I make an image. After that I worry about clearing out the useless items and updating. After tweaking the computer the way I want it, I make another image.

Hi Plodr, I have used it to download a copy of Office 2010 Home and student a couple of months ago. I have a 3 pc license and the disc was not in the case when I went looking. I started searching and went round in circles at Mircro$oft and stumbled across this app at the authors site. W.O.T. rates the site OK. When I ran the downloader it did not download an ISO of Office but a .exe copy. I scanned it with every security scanner known to man and it was clean, it installed and activated so I might have been lucky.

I have kept a copy (of the downloader) in my portable apps folder and thought I'd try to download Windows 10 today. The download did begin, which I cancelled, and it was an ISO, but this message box below had me intrigued. The fact that the office file downloaded, installed, activated and has got updates since, I guess means its OK?????

Gus, I haven't done Office. I have a three copy license for 2007 and I've only used one copy. The CD or perhaps DVD is in the case. My husband looked at it on my computer and decided he wanted no parts of it. I don't use it. Since I'm IT in our home, I install on my computers and then let him test it. He then tells me yea or nay and we go from there.

The older computers run Office 2000 and Office 2003. My husband prefers WordPerfect Suite so we have v7, v8 and version X6 of that on his computers.

I let him think so. :LOL:

I actually decide what computer(s) to get for him. He trusts my judgement. Most of the time it is either my hand-me-downs, a computer or two I got free and fixed up, or a purchased refurbed computer.

I put my old netbook next to his recliner in the tv room. He said, "I don't think I need this". I knew better. He is on that constantly looking up people, words, and further info on news stories he sees on tv. He loves it. No way would I get that away from him now.
