Not getting it - please advise! :-)
Go to the first one. In the upper right, LOG IN with your live ID.

Now go to the second link he gave. It will give an error eventually like the one I posted. Keep refreshing until you get a code.

That is all there is to it.

I'll sell you a key for $5.00
I am NOT getting this error - so, once again, while logged in, can someone just point me being logged in with LIVE to what page I should be hitting F5 for?

Thanks!!!

Did you guys get unique keys? I got two unique keys, one for the 32-bit and the other for the 64-bit. But if I do the procedure again I get the same key number as before. Doesn't matter to me though as you are allowed to install using one key on three different machines...

I'm just curious on how you got several unique keys...

They got them by using different LIVE ID's.

Okay, I am at the ERROR page, so being logged in with LIVE, (it does say LOG OUT), all I have to do is keep hitting F5?

Thanks
