    They've made some changes to the WHS connect site. Go to https://connect.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer

    Click on the apply link, fill out the participation survey, again, and there are the downloads.

    Hope that helps...

    My download peaked at just over 2600KBs.. Which I found rather impressive considering I'm (only) on a 24Mbps DSL line. Took longer to burn the DVD and CDs than it did to actually download the files Smile Currently Finalizing installation so I'm almost there.

  • So, is this the very latest version available?

     

    https://connect.microsoft.com/WindowsHomeServer/Downloads

     

    I too was waiting for a confirmation email / invitation.

     

    TIA,

  • The latest version is always available via Connect.  When the team posts a new version, they remove the older version.

    No. Microsoft turned off downloads several weeks ago, and the key generator a few days later. You will have to wait until WHS is available in the system builder channel to purchase it. Or if you prefer, until the OEMs like HP have their products on the market. There will also be a time limited (120 day) evaluation version available directly from Microsoft for the cost of media and shipping.
