Has anyone here ordered AND RECEIVED the dvd?

I ordered my copy on 8th June (received confirmation e-mail) and it was charged to my c/card on 26th June.

On Wednesday (5th July) I e-mailed them but have only had a "we'll answer when we get round to it" reply.

Same here - orderd confirmed from Microsoft and and funds were taken about 2 weeks ago but no no show of the DVD as yet.

Same here. Paid but no sign of dvd.

Interesting - I thought it might be just my post not being delivered.

Anyone know if there's any way to contact them (msdirectservices.com) other than e-mail?

Microsoft were inundated with requests for these DVDs, and I should think they're sending them as fast as they can.

Wasn't there a mention of 4 to 6 week delivery on the initial order form!.

£12.90 charged to my credit card on 20 Jun, not yet received the DVD.

Just as well that I downloaded the iso!

There is no way to track the order right?

Ordered mine 11.06.2006 and it arrived 8.07.2006. Did say on the order to allow 28 days for delivery, so they are pushing them out in a reasonable time.

Hope this helps

I got a copy of the download from a friend while I was waiting, and have already discovered that it doesn't work on my laptop (acpi problem) - but just wanted to double-check with the official dvd.

As a general observation, if I order something on-line and it doesn't arrive in the stated time (in this case "up to 28 days") and the company doesn't respond fully to my e-mail (I waited until the 28th day) I start feeling a little twitchy... and my post is unreliable at times.

While I was typing this I heard the postman approaching and rushed to the door -
it's here, postmarked 3rd July from Germany.

Hope everyone's copy arrives and they like it.
