Windows7 student offer

As a qualifying student at the OU I thought I'd buy Windows 7 from click here
It will allow me to buy Office Ultimate but there is no response if I try to buy Windows7.
Is it just me or is Windows7 not available from them yet?

Have you tried click here ?

Worked well for us

No. I haven't tried them. MS are offering the Home Premium full edition of Windows7 (or W7 Pro)on my link for £30-00.

W7 professional for £30 is a steal

Buy that in preference to Home Premium every time

  beeuuem 16:09 22 Oct 2009

I will - as soon as I can get it to allow me to 'Buy'!

  961 16:13 22 Oct 2009

been there, done that!!

Have they got a "contact us" link?

"Have they got a "contact us" link?2
Yes - but it sends you in circles.

Apparently it is Digital River who administer these sales. I've mailed them to ask if they can help.

I've used 961's link & found them to be efficient & fast.

I'm not sure why the link isn't working for you - it did for me a while ago, and it certainly is today - a couple of students have just ordered it in front of me - no problems...

Clicking on the buy button takes you to click here which asks for your email address for confirmation. You'll get a link emailed to that address that you click on for the direct download.

Is it still not working for you, and if not, what's it doing (or not doing)!

Clicking on the 'Buy' had no effect. By registering to buy Office I accessed the site and was able to effect a purchase.
Am now happi;y finding which of my programmes won't work on W7!!
