Windows 7: purchased UK student discount Win7, not downloadable

purchased UK student discount Win7, not downloadable

I apologize if this question has been asked and answered in this forum.

I purchased the UK student discount win7 professional -32 bit yesterday, and got the confirmation email saying it is ready to be downloaded.

However, when I was following the step 2 to copy and paste the given link to download the file (at this stage, this is a small file), I got a warning message in the IE window:

Sorry,

Too many download attempts: 21. You were allowed to download only 10 times.

If you have any questions, please contact Digital River Customer Service at CustomerServices@digitalriver.com.

I have to say I got this message at the first time when I attemptted to download it!!!

Besides writing them an email and being ready to wait for several days, what can I do to make the download counter reset?

Many thanks

Sounds like the given link was a mass emailing to other students who have exhausted the download. I also read in an other thread that the U.K students weren't receiving a student discount. Never know who or what to believe. looks like your going to have to hope for an email reply. Fabe

Go to:

http://store.digitalriver.com/store/...isplayHelpPage

and log-in using your order number and password they gave you for the student offer.

You should see the download button in your purchase summary.

Hope that helps.

I have already paid and the U.K. students should be able to receive the student discount:

Thank you for your suggestion and actually I got the same warning message (exceed download limit) when I access from either the link provided in the email, or the order page as you suggested.

Digital is hammered, MS is hammered.
