    I received an email back from Microsoft advising that their systems have been "under an extremely high workload worldwide due to the release of Windows 7 to our subscribers".  The also advise that the traffic has slowed somewhat and to try again.  So for those who have had problems, try again now.

  3. Dean Jennings says:

    I have now signed up over the phone and have been advised that I need to wait 24-48 hours for my subscriber ID to arrive by email.  Seems a long time to wait.

  4. Jack says:

    That’s terrific I’ve been thinking about getting a subscription (I used to have one but let it lapse).

    How long will the promo code last?

    Anyone else having trouble signing up?  it asks for my live ID and then :

    Sign in to Microsoft Order Management Help

    Windows Live ID is unavailable from this site for one of the following reasons:

    This site may be experiencing a problem.

    The site may not be a member of Windows Live ID.

    You can:

    You can sign in or sign up at other Windows Live ID sites and services, or try again later at this site.

    I couldnt purchase it either. I get to the live login page and my browser just trys and retrys and gets nowhere

  7. Dean Jennings says:

    I am also getting the same results after entering my Windows Live ID.  Can anyone from Microsoft advise what is going on?

  8. Richard says:

    Seems like they dont want us to subscribe eh

    I did it with no problem last night – I have a receipt, but I don’t know if I get an email to say that it is now active or I need to do some verification.

    The receipt says that it will be active after processing, and that was now 14 hours ago. If I login to Technet I still can’t do anything. It would be good if they indicated the time for processing or sent a confirmation email.

    Hard to know what the process is.

  10. Dean says:

    I have now tried from 3 different computers and used IE8, firefox & Chrome with the same results.  I’m not sure how Neil got through.

  11. Jeff25 says:

    I didnt have a problem signing up but I’m still waiting since Friday for my confirmation & technet subscriber ID. It seems very slow to process something that could be entirely automated.

    Needs more updates!!

  12. Mark Boon says:

    That’s frustrating, I only joined in July and paid the $512.00 🙁

    I would recommend TechNet though guys.



  13. whitedragem says:

    so if my subscription runs out and I have to reinstall (say win7), will MS authenticate my software on the next install if I am using my originally given keys?

  14. kkt says:

    There was a promo code for 40% off in July, Its a shame that doesn’t work anymore 🙁

  15. neosin says:

  16. Luke Thompson says:

My money is gone out of my account but microsoft is telling me they have no subscription under my details.. i have 3 orders and an email reciept to prove it, not sure wats going on but it aint working…

  17. Ian says:

    So is this subscription worked for anyone yet? Not sure I should try it based upon comments here…

  18. William says:

    What’s the point of Technet Direct if downloads are so slow.
