Unable to download 120 day trial activation key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have downloaded the WHS 30 day free trial and have that up and running (very nice, by the way).
    I've attempted to follow the instructions to download the 120 day product key, but so far I have been unable to.

    I've tried the following:
    1. Went to the Windows Home Server Connect site and logged in [OK]
    2. Clicked "Downloads" in the section to the right [OK]
    3. Clicked "Product Keys" in the resulting "Downloads" page [OK]
    4. Clicked "Request New Product Key" in the resulting "Product Keys" page

    At this point it shows: 

        Product Keys Available

        (none Available)


    What am I doing wrong???

    Nothing.  There is a problem with requesting keys (see connect and get trial key).

  • Thank you very much for confirming this.

    Do you know if (and/or when) they're planning to fix this issue?

  • Microsoft is looking into it, and it wasn't intentional.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
