License of Windows 8 from dreamspark RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I downloaded Windows 8 embedded pro from dreamspark few years ago and I use it without any updates (I disabled that). Now I need to update it. Can I do that? Is my license still legal? I still have the original product key.

    Sincerely Marek Vokal

  • I believe the DreamSpark program has ended as I cannot find a website for it. If you still have the license key, you should still be fine legally. WES8 is not really a good path for development as Windwos 10 IoT Enterprise and IoT Core are the successor products. IoT Core is free, you can learn more here: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot
