Still unable to get anything other than the can't process your order message. *shakes fist at Microsoft* No one with a spare key feeling generous? Trying to get the extra value out of paying for the upgrade LOL. :D

I haven't gotten mine either, but no matter to me. It is Free after all so if it never comes, whatever. :) Not like I paid them for it. If that was the case, then yeah, would be upset.

Got my key today but it doesn't work. So, not sure if it is my PC or not (OEM install from Toshiba).

So, hopefully people will get thiers soon since mine just came in 11 minutes ago. :)

Is your Win8 the Pro version? I believe the key only works on the Pro version not the "core" version.

After I tried the key it was THENthat I read the email. You are right - it doesn't work unless I have Pro. So, I have a useless key unless of course I can find a taker. But not sure if I could do that here or not via PM. :)

A kind soul here PM'd me their unused key a few days ago. (Thank you again!!) I'm sure someone here wouldn't mind the key. Kudos to you if you pass it on. :)

If this isn't against the rules, I have a key which I cannot use and will give to the next person who wants it (You must have at least 100 posts).

I just got an email from Microsoft saying it has to be activated by the 31st of January. You must have Win 8 Pro to use.
