Did you actually watch the webcasts? After you watch the webcasts it displays "Pending" and then roughly 24 hours later the Pendings will be updated with Completed/Finished (I don't remember the exact wording).

Here's why I'm confused, Windows Media Player would open but than a dialog box came up that the webcasts could not be played due to a network/server error. Yet when I returned to the page with the web cast list the three that I chose all say pending. Does this mean it will still go through?

All right! All of mine are now completed. I watched each only once and offline (downloading the ~10 MB file). Make sure you watch those videos to the end. I watched them at 3 or 4 am Wednesday morning so it may have taken up to 24 hours for them to update the status of the videos from Pending (one was "In Progress") to "Completed". It will be worth every minute of my sleep if I eventually get Vista Business. I'm now waiting to know how much the upgrade to Ultimate will be...

How would that make any difference? I find it hard to believe that MS is monitoring your system, what videos you watch, and for how long.

Btw: The pending thing only gets updated daily i think. That's why it's slow changing to complete.

Looks like the free licenses of Vista Business are now gone. If you haven't completed the Office 2007 offer, you should hurry up, as those are probably going just as fast.

Oh man, and after all the time it took just to get my three choices in pending status.

I hope they at least let the ones that are pending go through, I know they don't have to but it would be nice.

mine have all been pending for almost 24 hours, but last time I was able to get on the site was yesterday, so they all should be completed by now, but it wont let me onto the main page where you are able to login, and they tell you the 3 steps. the only page I can get to is the one that says choose vista business for office.
