Has anyone received information regarding how to access the free online books RRS feed

  • Question

  • I read that after activating the 2005 Express editions one would get access to three free online books but I haven't received any such information from Microsoft.  I am wondering whether anyone else has received any information regarding how to access those free online books.

    Thanks!

  • Yes, I received it, but it also took them several weeks. Just wait.

  • Hi Margie,

    I haven't receive any email regarding these books even though I had registered the Web Developer Express version quite a few days back.  I registered the VB and C# Express versions today.

  • I received confirmation in a few weeks.  I registers only ONE product (C# Express) and only received access to ONE free book.  I thought I was receiving all THREE.

    Besides that, the book is online only and not downloadable - and it expires after one year.

    I thought it would be a downloadable PDF or something.

    I am disappointed.
