    If you call Microsoft, they'll give you one over the phone. This is a known issue and the resolution, until Microsoft gets the process fixed, is to contact their customer support # in your country or region to get your key.

    Hi
    Spoke to a helpful guy at Microsoft (0800 026 0329) less than an hour ago, told him problem, he asked for some details and emailed key to me, all working fine.
    Worth a try.

    Windows 8.1 'Ultimate' RTM 64 bit (Pro/WMC).


    I've had the key sitting in my inbox since the offer was announced, I applied for one then. But I had to wait until I could afford to get a copy of Windows 8 Pro to install it on. Got that now, installed the key, and all is working fine. Very pleased. Wenda.

    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center


    Well I ordered my key Saturday and got it today. Was a bit shocked to see it sitting in my in-box so soon (based on the experiences others posted).

    Ordered here Add features - Microsoft Windows
