    Unable to register evaluation copy (Pro Preview) of 8.1.


    Greetings,

    I upgraded my computer's OS from W7 to W8 some months ago. Not long after, I upgraded to the preview of the Windows 8.1 Pro. My Windows-license is legit, bought and valid. However, when I returned from my christmas holiday, I noticed the message in picture #2. Fair enough, I thought and proceeded forth.

    Clicking 'Get Windows' got me to the screen pictured at #3. Oddly enough, I am unable to click any of the buttons, including Download, Home, Your apps and Your account. I can access the links further down on the page (which aren't included in this screencap) but for some reason I can't press anything else.

    When I've tried to access the Windows 8 Store before this problem arised, even before I installed W8.1, I have literally never been able to access the Windows 8 Store (See picture #1).

    I am in desperate need of help. How do I go from here? I would like to register the Windows 8.1, but I am at a loss.

    You need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 GA.

    Thank you for answering. I'm terribly sorry for not seeing the obvious here, but how would I go about doing that? Through the W8 Store?
