    I deleted my windows 8 when I went back to 7. So unfortunately I cannot retrieve the code. I think I will call Microsoft as they received my payment and all address details so they should be able to retrieve my code.

    Even though you download your e-mail to your computer a copy should remain on the e-mail provider. Whether it be MSN, yahoo, Gmail or from your ISP. Unless you chose not to retain a copy online.
    I learned my lesson about codes back in 2003. Since then I e-mail all license numbers for software to myself at several e-mail accounts and to my wife's e-mail account. For safety like this situation.
