    I have tried to download vista and I keep getting an error. Does anyone have
    an idea on what is going on. It still says I have a subscription. I was able
    to get RC1 & RC2 and have my cd key as well.

  2. You ever thought about Microsofts Server being down ?

    They get hammered like hell.
    2.5 times more downloads than Beta2.

    Just wait until the first run is over.

  3. See the messages posted in the microsoft.public.msdn.general newsgroup
    about the capacity and performance issues being experienced due to the
    unprecedented volume of downloads being attempted.
    Just be patient.

    Yes there has already be some discussions on that topic. Actually they
    removed Vista from their download list. Just have a look in msdn.general.

    Yeah, mine kept getting suspended, but I suspect that's what we get for
    having to download a 2.5 GB iso image instead of the old fashioned 550 MB
    isos of operating systems like in the good old days..

  6. I got on MSDN early and finished before the interruptions started. I did
    not have the same good luck with the Connect freebie download. I had
    interruptions for 24 hours before the download finally finished.
