This question was asked earlier in one of the threads, but got never answered -- When I create an Metro Account for a company based in the US, I get a screen asking for a "Registration code".
What kind of a code should I enter here? US-employer ID? Sales tax taxpayer number?
what's the format of this number? [how many digits, with/without hyphens?]
Thank you for your interest in developing apps for the Windows Store. Once Windows 8 is complete, the Store will be open for all developers to register. However, during the early testing phase of the Store we will be working with a hand-picked collection of third party developers. Over time, throughout the pre-release phase, such as Windows 8 Consumer Preview, we will be adding new developers. If you are not currently a registered Windows 8 developer, you will have a chance to potentially join later by attending one of our Windows 8 camps being conducted around the globe starting next month.
Hey, don't give silly standard/stock answers like you've given in other threads!
I asked "What kind of a code should I enter here? US-employer ID? Sales tax taxpayer number? what's the format of this number? [how many digits, with/without hyphens?]"
If you don't know the answer, what's the use in giving generalised stock-text?
Matt, thanks for your informative response!
[Sorry for my late reply, I'm in Europe at the moment and it's almost midnight here]
So, I suppose there's no way for us to get hold of a "Registration Code' until Windows 8 becomes commercial, right?
Even for us Microsoft customers who have been paid MSDN subscribers from Windows 3.1 onwards?
