That makes two.
bogmali. Buttt just how am I able to download. Everything is grayed out in the availability/download column. I'm using IE. Do I have to wait a bit like others have mentioned?
is this only for americans or am i missing something.....
If stuff is greyed out, you have to wait for an email.
If you're getting weird .aspx files when you try to download, you need the File Transfer Manager from Microsoft which can be found here:
I'm not home but was able to download a couple of technet keys for windows seven rc.
I guess i'll plug them in when I get home and then search/run "winver" to see what it says about license expiration...
You have to use IE not Firefox. Even using an IE tab in Firefox is no good.
Also, skip the benefits portal and go right the link in step 3 - Technet subscription management.
You will need a Window live sign in that matches your registration information - same name, email, address, etc.
This is so F!#%ING AWESOME. THANK YOU bogmali. I am thanking every single post of yours in this thread.
no good for those outside the USA.
you need some tax exemption certificate (its not optional) and you need to provide a US postal address.
Can't you just make one up? They don't send you anything in the mail that you actually need to start downloading, just some emails. 3801 Brooklyn NE Seattle WA 98105. There is an address for ya. hah
30 day expiration is IF you use a tax exempt certificate.
Which you aren't
Tax on $0.00 is $0.00 =)
This is great! I basically registered through my business and now I get Office 07 and Office Accounting Proffesional for free! So many downloads...
so little time. lol.
I have spent the past 1/2 hour just grabbing keys. I'll worry about the downloading part later.
So little time.
All hail broadband.
update: it DID work for me. use a fake address in the USA, and ignore the crap about a tax exempt certificate - it only asks for it if you tick a box and the email was misleading and made me think i needed it.
can anyone get keys? i'm trying for vista, and its failing.
I used some address in TX for a newspapers.
Works well, already downloaded myself about 4GB worth of crap and around 50 serials.
There is an official canada link, lol.
What happens to your software when the subscription expires?
Its ok, already done now.
Alex sprung this upon me within minutes of coming online - I just think this is epic. Downloading virtual PC (for shits & giggles) and Office Ultimate '07. Will be downloading XP and Vista, 2 copies of each (32 and 64 bit) and a butt load of keys.
Within 20 minutes of waking up im in heaven. lol.
Anyone else no longer get any Keys for Vista XP or Office 2007?
I managed to get a Vista Ultimate key just as this started, but cant get anything on the above now
Hopefully is just the key server being overloaded
I got plenty of keys, I did what Wile did and spent 30 minutes getting serials.
Thats what I have been trying to do, I only got one Vista Ultimate key, keeps throwing up errors now
I never got any just keep getting some error.
