  • Does anybody know if we need to request a new key for the RC or can we use the same key we had for build 7000?

  • Yeah..the whole subscriber/downloads section is down on MSDN and Technet... Man this stinks, cause I got a new laptop coming in today for work. I'm gonna be the guinnee pig and test all our "standard" software. It looks like I won't be able to download it in time before it comes in :( .

  • same problem here, cannot retrieve profile....

    Obviously, technet is being flooded with requests and is drowning right now....

  • where is it on Technet? I am signed in but somehow I am overlooking it?

  • I can't believe we can still bring MSDN to its knees!?  Surely they should be able to deal with this? Not a good advert for MS.

  • Yea I cant get a peep out of technet or msdn subscription areas :(
    Thursday, April 30, 2009 2:05 PM

  • Can someone post a link to where the download is located.  I can not find it anywhere...

  • Currently there are problems with MSDN/Technet. The current problem is being looked at and to quote TV stations of old 'Normal service will resume as soon as possible.'

  • Same error : Technet subscription does not work: when attempting a download from there, we just get an alert box saying "database error". Most probably a broken link...

    But this affects in fact all downloads listed n Technet Subscription. Really Technet Subscription server is down for me and needs fixing !
