    Hi, obviously tried to start downloading Vista Beta 2 after receiving the CPP
    invitation link. All was okay to start with as it progressed nicely through
    the sign-in pages and game me a window with a product key and language
    specific download link. After seeing the same "sorry our servers are busy"
    window for several minutes (and refreshes) I now receive a screen that states
    the following:

    Thank you for participating in the Microsoft Windows Vista Customer Preview
    Program.

    You have received the maximum number of Product Keys available for this
    program.

    Note: Windows Vista Beta 2 can be installed and activated on up to 10 PCs
    using with one Product Key.

    This is worrying to say the least!! Does this mean I'm shafted and will now
    NOT be able to download from the MS website? If not, is there a FREE support
    point I can contact MS about this problem so that I may downlaod once the
    servers can caope with demand?

    Thanks,

    Gazza

    so i should just click the link in the e-mail and then just leave it and
    wait for the download to come through?
