Unable to Download 32-bit version

    I apologize if I've posted twice on this topic. I didn't see my original
    post appear after a bit of a wait so I thought it may have been lost in the
    ether.

    I was able to get an activation key and download the 64-bit version of
    Vista. When I tried going through the same process again to get the 32-bit
    version, I was given an activation key but could not follow through to the
    download page for the file. When I tried logging in again, there appears to
    be only one route to the files--through the page where you're given an
    activation key. When I try going through that process, I'm told I have the
    maximum number of activation keys and am not able to get at the 32-bit file.

    Am I out of luck or can I get at the 32-bit version?

    Actually, the download worked fine from the URL posted by Rick. I've got the
    32-bit version now.
