Still, it would be nice if someone on their end would at least post a response!

Where? Maybe I missed it. There was speculation, a few more or less posed the question (including you!), but I have not seen a direct answer from Assassin. Now I understand that he sold out, I'm just inquiring if they might acquire more licenses, that's all. cool.gif

Maybe this is a moot point because it has been asked already or because x86 is limited in how much RAM you can have but are these good for doing a 32 bit installation too?

Since there's a few people who confirmed they have in this thread, are you trolling for something?

NO I am not. I am talking about the last group that has been waiting. No need to be a jerk, it was simply a question. If you don't have a civil answer keep your opinions to yourself!

There's no way of knowing whether the last people who purchased licenses are even forum members here

Either a PM or e-mail would be more effective

Agreed I suppose. Guys, I am not trying to stir up trouble. I ordered just before the notice saying they had run out. I tried asking a couple of times on their website. Got no response. I understand they are swamped. I am just trying to find out a rough timeframe. I have nothing but respect for Assassin! He said the remainder of the licenses went out Friday and Monday. Just asking if anyone knows, that's all. I think that's what forums are for, right.

Send Ben an email at sales@assassinhtpc.com

I have nothing to do with the licenses so really I can't comment further on the details.

I think I was one of the last to get right after they ran out of initial batch (order took a few days to go through). I received my license key in the mail last week.

If they had more on deck, I would buy a couple more right now.

Just to let everyone know - I received my activation code today and all is good. Thank you Assassin for a great deal on the software.

For those that received licenses and activated, how did activation go?

I installed Windows 7 Pro on Sunday using a Windows 7 Pro activation key purchased from Assassin and got the dreaded "the product key you entered cannot be used to activate Windows on this computer" message today.

I downloaded the Windows 7 Pro 64 bit ISO from: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-24281.iso. Created a bootable USB key with the Microsoft tool and all was good until today.

What did I do wrong? Help?

Thanks.

I know what you are going through. It took me about five tries. The lettering is so small on the key, that I finally had to get a magnifying glass. Turned out the three 8's were actually an 8, a B, and a 3. Works like a charm with the correct sequence! Try that first.

Isn't bulk purchase of licence something you can do again and again ???

(NOTE: I'd buy (4) x64 PRO if so )
