MC378975: Microsoft Evaluation Center availability has been resolved

Updated May 20, 2022: This issue is now resolved. Please visit the Microsoft Evaluation Center at for access to trials and evaluations for Windows client, Windows Server, and other Microsoft products and kits.

The Microsoft Evaluation Center enables organizations, and the IT professionals that support them, to download evaluation versions of Microsoft products. This experience is currently unavailable and work is underway to restore it. In the meantime, we have published an article that includes direct links to download the evaluation software for Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows Server 2022, and Windows Server 2019 as well as the Windows Virtual Hardware Lab Kit (VHLK) and the Windows 11 and Windows 10 and Office 365 Deployment Lab Kits.
