Windows 7: Canadian student Digital River download product key

Canadian student Digital River download product key

I downloaded from Digital River yesterday with the student discount, and had the same problem as everyone else "unboxing" the download. I used the fix that's been circling round the forums and have got it installed and working. The only thing I'm missing is a product key. Wasn't Digital River supposed to give me one in my confirmation email? I've received nothing of the sort, and would really like to activate this product I've purchased. I have product keys from previous versions of Windows that I've bought, but the machine I installed Windows 7 on was using Linux as its main operating system. Any thoughts?

The key was your confirmation when you purchased on the same page as the download button.

No, it wasn't. That's the thing! I've looked it up over and over again too, and its just not there. And I don't think I'm going to call Digital River in the next few days... I'm sure they have their hands full with the million other complaints about the release.

It happended to me too. Got the mail and downloaded the software, but the product key was nowhere, not on the download page, nor on the confirmation mail.

So, right now I have installed Windows 7, but are unable to activate it. Still have 27 days of full use. Hopefully I'll recieve my key before I can't use my laptop anymore.

Don't bother with Digital Rivers online customer support. Give them a call at (952) 253-1234. I had my product key within 2 minutes.
