Here’s a pretty picture of the kit I grabbed from one of those events.
Many of you ran home and cracked the seal on the kit and immediately followed the instructions. Those instructions told you to go to the website at http://www.registerwindowsvistasp1.com/ and plug in your PIN (the one inside the kit), your information and submit the request. After you submit the request, an email is sent to you with a valid product key for installation. The process worked perfectly until the deadline. That’s the good news.
The deadline WAS 12/31/2008.
For those of you that missed that deadline, it has now been extended until June 30, 2009.
So if you still have a kit and didn’t register it, please go do it now and have the product ID emailed to you.
Don’t expect the deadline to be extended again. Get over there and get this done. Please.
