I have a version of Microsoft Windows 7 Professional which I obtained from MSDN Academic Alliance.
I wish to install it, but the following section in the MSDNAA EULA somewhat concerns me:
MSDNAA EULA When you are no longer a registered student in a department that is a member of the MSDN Academic Alliance, you may no longer receive updates for your personal use computer. However, you may continue to use previously installed software on your computer, provided you continue to follow program guidelines.
This message appears for all available software on the MSDN Academic Alliance site, however I would like to know if this section means that this version of Windows 7 Professional will no longer receive updates once I am no longer registered as part of the MSDNAA scheme?
More specifically, will I still receive things such as Windows updates, etc?
The main reason for asking is because a friend of mine installed Windows 7 Professional on his laptop and he told me that it was a "limited version" of Windows and did not have the full functionality.
Has anybody here been part of the MSDN Academic Alliance and downloaded/installed the Windows 7 Professional OS and if so, are you still able to use it just as well as before and do you receive updates even if you are no longer enrolled in the MSDNAA scheme?
Have you had any problems or does it appear to be just the same as any other version of Windows 7 Professional without any limitations?
Sorry for the long question - I hope that somebody is able to assist?
