Windows 7 Professional English (x86 and x64) and Windows 7 Enterprise English (x86 and x64) are available in MSDN Academic Alliance since August 6th. And from Aug 13, Windows 7 Client Retail Professional English (x86 and x64) are available in ELMS (e-academy License Management System) that distributes the software to students.

Reason being, MSDN AA Program Administrators, managing ELMS website need to first enable Windows 7 downloads: “logs into the school/department’s ELMS site (example: http://msdn04.e-academy.com/ms_cdhs), clicks on ‘Product Management’, ‘Rapid Setup’ and ‘Configure Hosted ELMS now’, checks the box against Windows 7 Client Retail Professional Edition English x86 and clicks on ‘Enable All’ (or ‘Enable Selected’),” Reddy added.
