What's wrong with the registration service? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried registering my Visual Basic 2008 and it says,"Thank you for your interest in registering Visual Studio. We are currently experiencing issues with the registration process. We are working on this and will have it fixed as soon as possible. Please try to register your product again at a later time. We apologize for the inconvenience." I really want to get my program regitered before it expires. So what's wrong?

  • Hi,

    welcome to MSDN Forums.

    I am sorry but this forum is focused on Training and MS Certifications / Exams. I would suggest to try the registration later again. If it still does not work, there are multiple things you could do:

    1) Ask in a Forum that is covering such topics. I think, that the registration is part of the installation / setup so the Visual Studio Setup and Installation forum could be a good place:http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssetup/threads

    2) Microsoft has a Website to report bugs / problems called Microsoft Connect. So you could go to http://connect.microsoft.com and report a problem there (But please look carefully for the correct product).

    With kind regards,

    Konrad
