    Buying Upgrade with Promo code...


    Last Christmas I bought a laptop with Windows 7. Microsoft gave me a Promo code by email for a reduced price upgrade from Windows 7 to 8.0. I have downloaded the upgrade assistant to try and use the promo code, but it keeps telling me that the versions isn't available in my region. Then I tried the 8.1 assistant, but that said the promo code wasn't for with that version.

    Can someone tell me what I need to do to use my promo code??? It's no wonder they can't get people to upgrade.

    Even though I registered the offer and got a registration confirmation number prior to that date?

    The emails didn't mention any expiration date except for registering.
