Try from your email
but I did not get as far as a download purchase (so no key yet) before the assistant returned the message about not being available.
Did type your Post Code in right.
I never got as far as entering a postcode etc.
When I ran the assistant the first thing it did was check the hardware and apps, confirming they were OK.
Then there was a message something like - we are going on line to set up a few things to make it easier for you to upgrade.
Then a message stating that upgrade by download was not available in my country/region.
Could this be an extraneous message as the assistant has seen the PC has Win 8 Enterprie already installed and does not know what to do about it??
Yes, you can not use Enterprire, you can only redownload the setup files.Could this be an extraneous message as the assistant has seen the PC has Win 8 Enterprie already installed and does not know what to do about it??
It's Ok, I found the answer here
Can’t download Windows 8 Upgrade–not available in your country/region?.
Apparently the Assistant has to be run in Win XP compatibility mode - then it works.
Thanks anyway for your endeavoured assitance guys.
Am I right in my interpretation of the initial comments on the 'Redownload' instructions.
I read the instructions to be implying that if I have bought the upgrade and at the time of purchase downloaded the Installer ISO from a 64 bit pc then it will be for 64 bit,
if later I then run the 'Setup' program mentioned in the 'Redownload' instructions page on a 32 bit PC using the same key, this time the download will be the 32 bit Installer ISO
Is this correct?
Yes, that is correct.
When downloading the upgrade you need to
If you need to download 32bit Windows 8, download from a 32bit PC.
If you need to download 64bit Windows 8, download from a 64bit PC.
Are you sure, theog? When downloading upgrade ISO? I'm dual booting 8 x64 with 7worked x86. I downloaded 8 x64 Enterprise Evaluation (fresh install) ISO from my 7 x86.
I don't understand why upgrades would be different. Am I missing something here?
I have downloaded and burned an ISO for the 64 Bit install (did this using an unactivated copy of Enterprise 8 installed on a second drive)
I am now downloading a copy of the 32 Bit install using my Win 7 installation.
I want both copies as I need to see if all my progs run in 64 bit Win 8 to take advantage of all my memory (I have 6 GB but 32 bit only uses 3GB max).
I have a number of progs that a friend converted to Portable apps - but they were all done for 32 Bit and he's no longer around so can't get them re-done for 64 Bit (if that were possible), so if some don't work then I may have to revert to installing the 32 Bit Win 8.
