Bring Windows 7 back to the HeiDoc ISO Downloader

So Microsoft has pulled the public downloads of Windows 7 and Office 2010, which means, they're currently no longer available in our download tool.

In order to be able to continue providing these downloads, and many more, it could be an option to generate the download links through a Visual Studio Subscription (formerly known as MSDN). The subscription for the first year costs €7707. To cover the payment fees, the funding goal is at €8000.

Once the funding reaches an amount of €4000, I will start thorough research whether this kind of download link generation can be automated, so that ALL downloads on the Visual Studio portal (see list ) can be made available to ALL users of the download tool.

If it then turns out not to be working, all donations will be refunded.

Otherwise, I will start development, so that the new downloader can be released once the funding goal is met.

However, that is no guarantee that the downloader will work perpetually. Microsoft might decide to make changes so that downloading through the HeiDoc downloader no longer works. Worst case, the subscription will be blocked from downloading, and the money is lost. Do no donate if you aren't willing to lose this money.
