Finally able to download and install WLM...

Yes, the UI looks dull and ugly. Way too bloated too. There are quite a few bugs I have already found.

My connect.microsoft.com page does not have the "Feedback" link either... :no:

When did you create your password? I think it was around 20 hours before I could see any newsgroup other than microsoft.betanews.system.announcements

Where do I go to acess the newsgroups?

Where do I go to acess the newsgroups?

To use our newsgroups you will need a newsreader program such as Outlook Express (which supports multiple news servers and comes with several Microsoft products, including IE 4.0 or higher). Other third party newsreaders are available as well.

The link below allows you to retrieve your newsgroup ID and configure a password for use in the newsgroups.

To add a new news server using Outlook Express:

Open Outlook Express.

From the 'Tools' menu, select 'Accounts'.

Select the 'Add' button. Click 'News'. Follow the instructions in the Internet Connection Wizard.

Enter your name and e-mail address when prompted. Choose 'Next' after each entry.

On the Internet News Server Name Page, enter "betanews.microsoft.com" and check the box "My news server requires me to log on". Click 'Next'.

For account name, enter "<Your newsgroup ID>". Then enter your password. Click 'Next'.

Then click 'Finish'.

Select 'Close' and begin downloading your newsgroups.

NOTE: When you are connected, you may need to Refresh Newsgroup Headers in order to see newer postings, including your own. Other newsreaders may have different ways of doing this.

For the latest information about Outlook Express as well as a list of Frequently Asked Questions, check out the Outlook Express Web page at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/oe/ for Windows users and http://www.microsoft.com/mac/oe/ for Macintosh users.

If you are unable to access Microsoft beta newsgroups you may be behind a corporate firewall. You may be able to install a proxy server that is able to pass protocols on port 119. Otherwise, your system administrator can solve the problem by opening the News port in the firewall (port 119).

Thanks. But where is that link to get ID and password?

EDIT: I figured it out. Thanks for your help!

Guys I can't sign in. Can someone tell them that p [underscore] emil [at] hotmail [dot] com cannot login? I don't have a feedback button in connect either :s

Please see the screenshot. Repair puts a nice green checkmark beside ip and does nothing. Sign in still fails and hitting restart gives another exclamation mark.

Does WLM8 use specific ports, as I do have a router..

On your connect site, under Community section. When you press this button it'd tell you your ID and will ask you to enter password you desire.

Have you tried releasing and renewing your ip address through windows?

Just did it. Nothing. But it's definitely WLM8 because I can browse, use p2p etc. perfectly.
