    Same here. Ars says this is a bug that Microsoft are working on.

    Anyone else who had registered having trouble retrieving keys? Methinks the server might be a tad busy...

    Thanks for this! Order has gone through, trying to login now.

    Not being familiar with TechNet and what it allows, am I right saying that I can now download software and use it legally even after the subscription expires?

    There is a kown bug in the File Transfer manager that MS uses to control doawnloads, the workaround for XP is here: Microsoft File Transfer Manager

    VISTA / Server 2008:
    If you are running Vista or Windows Server 2008, you should check to make sure User Account Control (UAC) local policies are not precluding the Active X installation and launch from happening. In Windows Server 2008 there are 10 new UAC policies with 2 or 3 options each, and some users have found they needed to make adjustments in order to successfully install FTM. Specifically Enabling "Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account." has allowed FTM to be installed for some users experiencing this problem.

    Or you can download it here: Microsoft File Transfer Manager
