With the release of version 7.0, the old license key is not eligible to be used with 7.0 How do you generate a new key for 7.0? Recently 7.0 was made available for me to download for evaluation. It was unavailable back in March.

vSphere or vSphere Hypervisor (aka esxi :p)?
For the free esxi you need a new registration (Not a new account!) for every major update.

Does that mean I have to register under another account to get the key?

I remember vaguely I download 6.0 under a different account from 5.1. This was years ago.

I ended up registering a new account to get the key. Under the old, I’m even permitted to download lest get a new key.
