I guess it wasn’t last call – register those Windows Vista Promo Kit PINs

I guess it wasn’t last call – register those Windows Vista Promo Kit PINs

LastCall_thumb I would imagine some of you attended Microsoft events last year.  At some of those events we handed out or raffled off NFR copies of Windows Vista Ultimate SP1.

Here’s a pretty picture of the kit I grabbed from one of those events.

Many of you ran home and cracked the seal on the kit and immediately followed the instructions.  Those instructions told you to go to the website at and plug in your PIN (the one inside the kit), your information and submit the request.  After you submit the request, an email is sent to you with a valid product key for installation.  The process worked perfectly until the deadline.  That’s the good news.

The deadline WAS 12/31/2008.

Repeat, WAS.

For those of you that missed that deadline, it has now been extended until June 30, 2009.

So if you still have a kit and didn’t register it, please go do it now and have the product ID emailed to you.

Don’t expect the deadline to be extended again.  Get over there and get this done.  Please.

  • Keith, what about the TERM written on NFR Pack: "Your right to use the software will expire 365 days after its installment".

    This means that after this 365 days I need to reinstall again Vista? Can you please clarify this.

    Thank you


  • No sorry.  I don't like to weigh in on legal matters.

  • Thanks, Keith. Sorry I missed Dallas Monday, that ice storm caused me to to be absent for the Con as well as a chance to see AC/DC in Tulsa later that night. It was not my week but this helps a bit.

  • Thanks for the reminder Keith. I just registered my copy.

    BTW: Join us on Twitter if you haven't already done so. If you have, please let us know in a post so we can follow.
