    Windows 8 Not downloading


    Hi,

    I have purchased windows 8, I am currently using Windows 7 and downloaded the set up file but when I double click it, it says Downloading Windows 8, please wait 0%complete and it's like this for last 4 hours. Can anyone tell me why is this happening?


    Prompt response would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Uday

    Hi,

    I did as mentioned in the forum. I entered my product key and it took me to the screen where it says Downloading Windows 8, 0% complete and it's the same screen for long time. Nothing is happening.

    Please let me know how can I resolve this.
