Microsoft to Remedy 'Family Discount' Tragedy

It looks like Microsoft is ready to settle the score with customers who took advantage of the Vista Family Discount offer earlier this week. As reported on Wednesday, anyone who purchased Windows Vista Home Premium using the keys provided by Microsoft's Vista Family Discount was unable to use the keys. Windows Vista reported them as invalid.

Microsoft still will not tell me what the keys are for, however as promised I did get a call back today. I was told by Microsoft, "We do not know how these false keys where issued, but we do know the solution." What is Microsoft's solution?

Anyone who took advantage of the Windows Vista Family Discount should be on the lookout. Microsoft will be emailing those customers new product keys for Windows Vista Home Premium within the next 3-5 days. The new product keys should work without a hitch.
