Windows 7: Don't buy Windows 8 right away with Paypal.

I'm using a trial of Keytext to automate the process...
here's the macro i'm using:
Code:
{Run "D:\User\Downloads\Windows8-UpgradeAssistant.exe"}{Pause1}			{Return}{Pause6}{Return}{Pause9}{Return}	{Return}{Return}{Pause 6}				First	last	number	email	email	street		town	(first letter of province/state)	postal/zipcode{Return}{Pause3}			{Down}{Down}{Down}{Return}
you may have to tweak the pauses, and you have to fill in your information. i also checked the "don't show this alert when openin this application" and temporairily dropped down the security a notch so it doesn't do the dimmed screen thing.

H8 very good. I like that. I also notice your post count is right on 6000. Play the lottery.
Thanks I didn't even notice. As you see, I don't keep up with post or rep count.

IT WORKED! I got a product Key!
Am now downloading Windows 8 to install on my laptop.

i didn't get an email yet, so I have to make sure I save the key.

I still didn't get my money back for when i paid for my desktop
But so far it's looking like a simple process: in two days I can elevate my dispute in paypal and i should get it back quickly after that.

by then I'll see how Windows 8 is, and if it seems like it will be useable with my logitech k400.

Why wouldn't it? I was under the impression Logitech had drivers for Windows 8. I thought I saw them when I got the updated drivers a couple of week ago for my Logitech Wireless keyboard and Mouse. Of course I'm still on Win 7 but I swear I saw Win 8 drivers as well.

Unless Microsoft confuses the laptop purchase with the failed desktop purchase.

YOU: I never got my purchase.
MS: Sure you did. We sent you the Product Key and you activated Windows 8.
YOU: No, you don't understand. I ordered for my desktop first. PayPal took my money. You guys say you never got that order. So I placed a second order for my laptop. That's the Product Key you sent.
MS: So you admit you got your Product Key?
YOU: Yes, but for my laptop. Not for my desktop.
MS: We show no order for a desktop. Are you trying to scam us? Please hold while we escalate this to our fraud department.

fortunately I still have the service tickets. But at this point it should be automatic.
And the laptop was the discounted to $15 while the desktop key was for $42. Also:

Maybe I got lucky then... I ordered my 15 upgrade copy on launch day through the Upgrade Assistant and it all went through fine, well except that it wouldn't let me order it from the Evaluation copy of 8, I had to reinstall 7.

By the way... not that I am condoning it, but the 15 upgrade offer if you buy a new PC? They don't actually check whether you did buy a new PC... seems a bit strange. (I did... but it never asked me to prove it)
