    Media Center Key Error!!! Please Help


    Hi.

    So i read about the free key for windows media center.
    For a few weeks I have been trying this link:
    Add features - Microsoft Windows

    the one everyone has used.

    Always got this message:

    We couldn't process your order.
    If you think you have received this message in error, contact a Microsoft Customer Support representative.
    Terms & Conditions


    So I went ahead and called Microsoft like on Dec the 20th and explained that I was getting this even though I paid for my Activation Key for Windows 8 when it came out.
    After some trying by the guy he went and spoke to his supervisor, after a few minutes he came back and said that they were having problems with this and that I should try in a few days and that it should be working.

    23 Days later (today) and I still keep getting the same message.
    Ive tried the email i bought my AK with and with different emails and still the same problem:

    We couldn't process your order.
    If you think you have received this message in error, contact a Microsoft Customer Support representative.

    Please Help!!

    P.S.
    Now ive read that supposedly after buying my activation key I should have gotten this key as well.
    I never got it and the MS operator said I should have and just told me to try the site in a few days.
    NADA.

    Windows 8 Pro With media Center


    I think mircosoft has hit the breaks on this deal, as they realized that pirated copies of win8 can be legitimatley activated with the free mce key. However i think they will not admit this and instead just claim to have an issue with the site giving out the keys. I had signed up for one and a week later still hadnt recieved a key. So i went back to the signup site and got the same error your getting over and over. Low and behold 2 more weeks later i get the key in my email. Then i see all over the net how to get win 8 with media center for free legit. Since they promised this deal till jan 31st, they just make up bs about the site having issues and to try again, so they dont give out win 8 to more pirates.

    No.

    [sorry, Google translate]
    Well, I managed to order two extra keys on 2 PCs on which I did not do the application. So it is not the IP or MAC address of the box that mark. I do not the MAC address of the network card of the PC because I am applying in wireless and ethernet application. And it does not.
    So Microsoft identifies the PC on which you make a request and denies the request for a new key if redmande on the same PC. Before until at least December 31, 2012, it was not like that.

    With thanks

    => I'm deleting cookies and browser cache, IP, different network adapter (ethernet / wifi) for not having the same MAC address, reapply with a different email address, it does not work.
