That's another thing, I used the email associated with my business.
That deserves a HOLY SHIT!
Erocker's Fine Women and Fineries?
That doesn't help much, how do I get the subscription number in the first place?
Even if you do it doesn't matter at this point.
Well it doesn't seem to for now, but like erocker, I have a tax id and company email.
I knew I should have written down the keys I got =\
And now it's greyed out for me too.
Meh, guess I'll have to buy one again, TAX writeoff!
Server overload / maintenance then. Must be. Keeping positive! lol.
I'm starting to think the title should read "One day free subscription" instead.
Oh well, the only thing we can do is wait a day or two and see if it will let us begin again.
If not, oh well I guess...I got plenty for what I wanted.
Well even if so, how the heck do you get the benefit number, all I find it login, and the technet main page which allows me to "buy" a subscription for the normal $349...
Saying, if it still works the way it was supposed to.
If anyone is feeling generous please feel free to PM me a Vista key or two I didn't get the chance to write mine down while I had access.
If you're just getting to this thread, the deal is probably dead now..
It appears like they took down the key server/generation. Probably for good reason too.. I can't get to my keys, but my downloads are still going, so those work fine.
My question is for any past subscribers/someone with a paid sub. is it still working for you? I haven't seen any news from Microsoft about this. (You'd think the INQ would be all over this.)
I'm getting that same message.
F*ck it. I'll buy it if I want all this access. Not worth the hassle for me any longer.
Same here. Downloads are continuing, but downloads and keys on the download page are now grayed out. Downloads are continuing, and I grabbed a couple of keys this morning. That's all I need.
Yeah, looking on other sites it hasn't made any news yet that I could find, but I found this:
So, anyone with a renewed sub from this able to chime in status?
Regardless this was a really cool promo, and I'll probably end up buying this anyways. $249 for M$'s whole library? hells yeah.
EDIT: For the software, my XP Pro SP3 x86 key just activated.
Ahh well it was good while it lasted, Had what i needed.
I can still get to the dl page but is still grayed out with the "alert" in the upper right hand corner. It's not telling me that I'm not authorized or w/e. Is there still hope?
No. All your options are grayed so you can't do anything now. But if you really want to make sure, check and see if you have access to
the CD Key page.
Meh, no big deal I guess, would have been cool but oh well.
As I said tax write off, so I wont complain "too" much.
To anyone here that does side jobs in IT, you can also claim them as a tax write off, or maybe you are in school, tax write off, I have had subscriptions in the past, they are nice, just click dload the iso's and get your keys, I literally use it just to get discs for installs even.
hmm, i have a saved receipt from microsoft entitling me to this stuff. i wonder if i can bully them into allowing me access.
Oh yeah sure. Ask them for a bowl of ice cream while your at it.
With the "item" saved in my cart last night, I went through with the order and it worked. Now have a Subscriber Benefit Access Number. xD
