  • OK.  I logged in at the connect home page.  How do I access the RC1 download from there.

    Once you sign in to Connect, click "My Participation", then "Windows Home Server", then you should see a downloads link on the left.  It should be between "Windows Home Server Home" and "Product Keys".

  • Thanks guys!  But I don't see Windows Home Server under my participation.  Could my user id be deactivated?  If so, then why would I get the email link for RC1?  Who do I contact?

  • Do you have more than one Windows Live IDs? Please make sure that you are using the same ID that is associated with the email address that you received the RC annoucement from.

    Did you get this email and update your profile?



    Dear Microsoft Connect Registered User,

    As a registered user on the Microsoft Connect Web site, we want to inform you about an update coming soon that will affect your profile information. This update will make it possible for you to access your profile and update the personal information you have provided through Microsoft Connect or other Microsoft Web sites in one central location at http://profile.microsoft.com/. This update is scheduled to happen on Saturday, June 2nd, 2007.

    When you registered with your Windows Live ID/.NET Passport at http://connect.microsoft.com, you entered your profile information with our Web site exclusively. There is also a separate profile store associated with Windows Live ID/.NET Passport accounts at http://profile.microsoft.com, which serves the majority of Web sites on the Microsoft.com domain. As a service to you, and to future users of the Microsoft Connect Web site, we will merge these two separate profiles into one which will be stored at http://profile.microsoft.com.

    What happens after the update?

    After June 2nd, 2007, when you log in to Microsoft Connect, we will show you a reminder message to update your profile information. If you don't update your profile information within one month after June 2nd, 2007, you will be automatically asked to make updates on your next visit following this date.

    What happens if I have a profile on both sites?

    You may have profile information on http://profile.microsoft.com where the information is different from that on Microsoft Connect. We will not make any decisions for you about your profile information, we will ask you to update and save your data yourself.

    Make a note of these important impacts of the update:

    1. The Microsoft Connect "alternate e-mail address" will be dropped from your profile and deleted from your record. This will affect very few users since this "alternate" has seldom been used by Microsoft Connect.

    2. Microsoft Connect and Microsoft newsletters will use only one e-mail address to communicate with you. If you have been using two different e-mail addresses for these communications, you will have a chance to decide which one to use moving forward. This e-mail address will be associated with the Windows Live ID/.NET Passport you use to access your profile.

    Thank you for your help and patience during this process and we look forward to continuing to serve you.

    Microsoft Connect Team

    This is an unmonitored e-mail address, so please do not reply to this message.

    As a Microsoft Connect registered user, you are receiving this announcement about an update to your Microsoft Connect profile. Microsoft is committed to protecting your privacy. To learn more, please refer to the Microsoft Online Privacy Statement at http://privacy.microsoft.com/.

  • Yes I did and I updated my profile after that, email I had only filled out the home server participitation survey a few days before and after I filled out the survey I even thought to fill out the home server participitation survey again.
