      People have said that it worked on R1, but I am not sure if it works on R2 as I am using Standard, not Enterprise. You could test this for us if you like 😉

      Yes it definitely works for now on Std and ENt the same happened when I posted the original get free key at MDL, but they changed it when they ran out. So get them now before they are gone 🙂

      Are the keys only usable once, or is it you can only have one copy activated with one key at a time?

      Yeah, you don’t need to use a proxy I have found 😉

      Funny thing is, now that I know I don’t really care. It seems that DirectAcess was supposed to be in the interprise level and not in standard, but they changed it. It’s in standard now too 😀

      Has anyone tried this recently? I just did, and Windows tells me my Dreamspark key won’t work with the Enterprise Edition (from the Director’s Cut).

      Are there any pre-modded Standard Editions out there? I’m not sure I want to mod it all by myself…

      Unfortunately when MS ran out of the original DreamSpark keys (hmm I think that post was too popular) they only released new keys that only work now for Standard.

      Thanks for the reply and good to know that the keys actually changed. Nobody seemed to know anywhere I went.

      But luckily ExpertUser released the OEM project a few days ago which lets you choose during install which edition you want. So I reinstalled, chose Standard, typed in the Dreamspark key, and voila!

      Best Windows I ever had, and that’s on a Mac via Boot Camp!

      Anyone ever try to use the Dreamspark licence to activate an Enterprise install? I have a copy of 7 Ultimate that I would really really like to use DirectAccess on. Really lame that they restrict to not only 7 Enterprise and Ultimate, but even from Server 08 R2 Standard.
