    Hello, I am attempting to activate my key after an initial attempt where the key did not arrive in my e-mail.  The website indicates pincode is in use, as I would expect.  When I enter my e-mail to get the key, I never receive a message.  Can you assist?

    i also have same problem.

  4. Maurice says:

    Do you know if the site for this is still active?  All I get is Bad Request(Invalid Host Name).


  5. Andrew says:

    I have the same issue with the site being inactive.  Did Microsoft pull the site down?

  6. Howard says:

    I am also trying to use the promotional copy of Vista Ultimate and am getting a 400 Bad Request error. How do I resolve this to get my license from the PIN on the package?



  7. John Russo says:

    I am not able to connect to the registration site.  I installed Ultimate and tried to register yesterday 1/3.  This was the first chance I had to install since attending the Technet event.  I needed it to fix problems I was having with Vista Home Premium.

    I certainly hope this does not make my PIN nonredeemable. I had been hoping to use this NFR license for a new system that I put together with new hardware I received over the holidays. Now I’m in a holding pattern trying to find out how to get my Vista license.
