    Hi Diji N J

    These forums are for supporting Windows 7.

    it sounds like you need to telephone your local Microsoft office.

    Here is a link where you can find the telephone numbers for all of the Microsoft Worldwide Offices.

    Microsoft Worldwide Home:
    http://www.microsoft.com/worldwide/

    Hope this helps.

  • Actually I developed this GUI concept to support/improve Windows. I never thought microsoft will do something like this to a small time devoloper.

    I contacted microsoft over phone its interactive. there is no option for general en query. for partner option I need to have a id number. I also contacted to iplicreq@microsoft.com and connect@microsoft.com but there wasn't any response. so how can get the attention of Microsoft legal department on this matter

    please help!

  • Hi Diji N J

    I posted the link to the Microsoft Worldwide contact website.

    You should use the telephone to contact Microsoft, not by posting on technical support forums or by email.

    This discussion is off topic for these forums.

    Thanks for understanding.
