Microsoft has banned Russian users from downloading Windows 10 and 11


On the official website of the American Microsoft Corporation for residents of Russia, there is a restriction on downloading Windows 10 and 11 operating systems, as well as their images and the Media Creation Tool program. This is reported by TASS.

Attempts to install operating systems fail with the error “404 — File or Directory not found”. With a VPN connection, the download takes place, the publication says.

At the moment, Microsoft has not commented on what is happening.

It is worth noting that foreign IT giants massively refuse to work with Russian companies and government organizations – they stop selling and supporting their software.
