Registering Visual Basic 2008 Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have loaded Visual Basic 2008 Express Version

    Version 9.0.21022.8 RTM
    Microsoft .NET Framework
    Version 3.5 SP1
    Installed Edition: VB Express
    Microsoft Visual Basic 2008   91908-152-0000043-60703

    on my Windows XP pc, and created a Microsoft Account,

    When I click on the Register Now link in the Register Product from the Help menu, it takes me to the Microsoft Login page,

    When I Login in I get a Microsoft page (http://www.microsoft.com/404.htm) saying "Sorry - page could not be found"

     -  has the registration key page been moved?

     -  do I still need to Register to use for more than 30days?

     -  is there a newer version that I should be using?

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance for any help
