Update for everybody.

Just got off the phone with MS, and they told me that everybody who bought their subscription between Sunday the 26th and today is not getting access to their subscriber benefits, and they are working on fixing the problem. If you are trying to activate your subscription, and you keep getting an "unrecognized subscription data" error, this is why. They have assured me that they are working on the problem, and that everybody who was affected will have their subscription dates changed to start the day they activate their subscription, rather than the day they purchased it.

The lady on the phone promised me that I would have access by next week, which is when Windows 7 RTM will be available :)

Just an update for you guys in case you're wondering or are in my situation, TechNet Activation is still borked. I'm about to come unglued at them, along with another thousand or more people who have gotten a subscription within the past week.

The "TechNet Plus Direct" subscription where you would only be able to download the things you're given is $261.75 after the promo code but before the promo code, the price is $349.00.

The "TechNet Plus Single User" subscription where you can either order the things or download them is $449.25 after the promo code but before the promo code, the price is $599.00.
The international subscription is $524.25 after the code and before the code it is $699.00.

I was wondering if the Technet subscription would include Windows 7 Ultimate.
I'm going to be installing Windows 7 Ultimate onto 5 or more PCs and I was hoping this is the best way to do it.

Also, my download speed is regularly 200kb/s to 300kb/s.
Should I go for the Direct subscription or the Single User subscription?

Single user. Once you download the ISO, you can just generate keys. I would run it overnight instead of paying more for the discs. They will have W7 Ultimate available on August 6th.

Is there a limit on the amount of keys I can generate?

And how long do the promo codes last?

Promo codes' expiration dates are unknown.

I believe you get 10 keys per version, so 10 Ultimate, 10 Professional, 10 Home Premium.

And YAY MY SUBSCRIPTION JUST ACTIVATED!

Let me get this straight, for the price of a 1 year subscription (€373, €280 with 25% off code) I get access to what? Windows 7 when it comes out? 10 keys for each version?

Can I use those keys whenever I want? On multiple computers? Are they retail so I can use them forever?

Sorry for the long post :eek:

You get retail keys so you can use them forever. They do not expire when you cancel/don't renew your subscription.

DISCLAIMER: This is what I believe to be true. There may be some programs that are listed that you can't get all the versions of, etc.

When you get the Technet Plus Direct subscription, do you get ANYTHING by mail?
Or is everything activated and notified through email?

One more question:
Is there anyway I can use Paypal to subscribe? I currently don't have a credit card but I have a bank account as well as my monthly bank statement to do the order.

When did you apply for the subscription again?

I'm just wanting to get a rough estimate of how long I'll have to wait.
Now that they fixed it, you shouldn't have to wait.

They ask for a CC. I would have used PayPal if it let me. No Paypal :(

10 keys per apps as previously stated and you can install them on multiple PCs as long as you some kind of affiliation with them. The big NO-NO is that these apps are strictly "Not for Sale" (NFS) and some of you already know or have an idea on how MS goes after and treats perpetrators that violate their EULA. But bottom line, it is worth it down to the penny;)

you ever installed "sips" ram? if not then i been dealing with computers longer then u :p

sips ram is effectivly a 32pin SIMM but with needle contact points on the bottem rather then the normal flat conntact points, real pain in the butt, made me crazy deling with systems that used that crap, 64-256k PER STICK was the norm back then, some companys soldered pins onto 30-32pin simms to allow up to 4mb per stick on those POS systems.....but then most of the systems couldnt make use of it!!!
