Hi

Is there any way I can try out the Vista Beta?

Registrations were closed on 30th June by Microsoft and the last download was 14th July click here Don`t know if there`s a way to do it now.

Well if it just involved downloading a file, surely it would be possible to share that file wouldn't it??

I don`t know. If you had to register it first before you could download it it would be difficult to load it onto two computers.

I`m on a Beta test with MS at the moment. I had to pre-register and they sent me a disc with the program. I then had to log on to their beta test site with my details to activate it. This is not however a public beta test.

The "file" is a massive 3.3GB ISO that needs to be burned to DVD. If I remember correctly, the supplied Product Key can be activated on up to 10 PCs.
