  • Question

  • I cannot find nowhere the the full-text electronic books from Microsoft Press announced on the registration benefits site. (Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition: Build a Web Site Now! - by Jim Buyens and Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition: Build a Program Now! -  by Patrice Pelland).

    Could anyone tell me the path?

    Thank you.

  • Hello,

    After you register your copy of either Visual Basic Express or Visual Web Developer Express, you will get a confirmation email with a link to sign in to http://connect.microsoft.com with the same Passport account you used to register the product. From there, you can directly download the book.

  • Thank you Dan for  your answer.

    But unfortunatly yet I have not the books. I registered both Visual Basic Express and VWeb Developer, and received the confirmation messages:

    Feladó: "Microsoft" <confirm@profile.microsoft.com>
    Címzett: ebergabor@freemail.hu
    Tárgy: Thank you for registering Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition!

    But at the Connect site couldn't find the books. May be I tried to sign up with MSPassport ID, and not with the product code.

    Doesn't matter. I found at Learnandhome site a good tutorial for VBE and watch the MS Videos for VWD. Only cannot beleive I'm so stupid to be unable to get those books.

    Wouldn't be helpful the method to send a direct link with the conformation message?

  • Hey Eber,

     

    I forwarded this on to our team to see what the issue is for the books and we'll follow up.
