    Hey there. Gonna buy Xp Pro for 39.99 from Microsoft. When I sign up for a channel partner thingy or whatever, what do I put for my email and Company name?

    Thanx

    Thanx for the quick reply Jewelzz! Ok, so If I put my email address, do I just make up a fake company name. If so, will Microsoft be able to check or will it just go through?

    Thanx again

    Eric

    Ok, another crisis. I went to this site http://members.microsoft.com/partner/campaign/winpro2.aspx and clicked continue. When it asked me for my email address, I put the one I have for passport and it wouldn't go through. It just trys and trys but it opens and just about loads, and then starts over, and it just keeps going. So basically I can't login to sign up for the deal.

    Thanx

    Eric

    Ok, thanx, yet another question, sorry I know i'm a pain in the ass, but is a credit card the only way u can order, cuz my mom doesn't want to order by credit card. I would find out for myself, but she doesn't want me registering unless she knows about payment options. Please say you can order by money order, Please.

    Thanx again:)

    u will probably have to ring Microsoft directly as there is other ways to buy their products as not everyone has a credit card

    Damn, that sucks. So if I call Microsoft, won't they find out that I'm not a company or can I just give them my email addy, and say I'd like to Go Pro(hehe) and they will just let me buy it?

    Thanx again

    Eric

    Available while supplies last to people registered and participating in channel programs
