When registered, I was keeping get this error message:
Invalid email address
I have provided my hotmail address, like XXX@hotmail.com,
What's wrong with that?
Friday, July 21, 2006 3:15 PMI, too, am having the same problem. I use my school account, gmail, yahoo, and Insight; all to no prevail. I could use help on this topic myself. I contacted Microsoft, but they were as useless as always when it comes to support. Is there an alternative method to registering this product? Thanks
Friday, July 21, 2006 3:31 PMAlso had the same problem for the last half hour. Won't register for C# or VB
Friday, July 21, 2006 4:07 PMI'm having the same problem. Tried every email address I had.

i know my email is valid because microsoft has sent me emails confirming setup of my passport account. i also tried it at the school i work at with a different email and got the same result.
looks like a microsoft foul up to me.

For anyone who is interested, I have just had a long, frustrating experience with registration. I think the problem resulted from nothing more than a delay in the setup of my MS Passport account. Over a period of hours, my credentials would get me far enough to enter my information, but not far enough for the information to be accepted. Argggh!

how long did you have to wait? i've been sitting here all day after trying to register at 09:00 this morning...
someone i know reckons they still have the key they were given written down somewhere so i can always post that if it'll be of help...
Monday, July 24, 2006 2:41 PMI'm in the same boat.. registration is free.. free product.. but can't get past e-mail validator to get a code. It'd be nice if they'd fix that.

Go to Microsoft Profile Center (http://profile.microsoft.com) log in with your passport . check you have an email address listed. it will be displayed on the screen under the subsection "Email addresses"
If you can just see a button that says "Add" then click it and add the email address you are trying to use to verify with. then you should get an email with a confirmationlink in it. clcik on this. the key should come up. try to register again.
i'm off home now..
