Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant wont accept my credit card (american express) RRS feed

  • Question

  • So, i wanted to upgrade to windows 8, and it led me to downloading this software, Windows upgrade assistant. Now the problem arose when i was giving my credit card details. The error that i got was under card number, saying "Invalid Credit card type". Now i don't know what to do, as this is the only credit card i have. I am pretty sure that my credit card is working fine, and what i entered was correct.

    So the windows upgrade assistant basically wont accept my credit card.

  • I can confirm, they do not accept AMEX (issued outside of the US) and their technical support "for elsewhere in the world", located in Germany, won't speak English to you (just gave them a call).

    Should I pirate it, perhaps? It is, certainly, easier. Think, Microsoft.
