    Me too. Thanks.
    I think there should be a separate portion of forum where we can post such offers so that these offers will be beneficial for more members.
    Can any mod please comment about this.
    Thanks.

    From the way I read the notice, that link will only be active during the hours noted. And you'll be instructed then and there how to get it.

    I had to look up the time-zone conversion, since CET was a new one on me. That's GMT (UT) +1, so for me, in Eastern Daylight (eastern Canada and US), the "window" will be 7 PM Saturday till 7 PM Sunday. You can do your own local conversion from that, if it's easier than using CET.

    ? ? ?
    I know that, right now, Belgium is 6 hours ahead of the Eastern US -- is that not GMT+1, putting you an hour late at 7PM ?
    Anyways, I'm in Texas (Central Time, GMT-6 ?) right now and plan to give it a try at the stroke of 5 PM.

    Grumph, why does this always happen as soon as I buy something :p :D Well, I do still have some machines without licenses, so this will still be great :) I just hope that the servers don't get so overloaded that I can't get at it.

    If I click on the link in the original post, I get an error message.
    But I'm not going to cry over not getting a free version of winRAR either.
    I use the freeware IZArc for unzipping, including .rar-files.

    The way I read the OP, you will continue to get an error until 0.00 your time, an hour from now.

    I got mine !

    Good Luck.

    Having AI RoboForm sure made it easy to do it about 6 times in the course of a half minute and the sixth time it got through. The first five times I got the error message like the one dog posted above.

    Thanks for the link. Just got mine. Server is very busy and shows often warning 'To many connections'.

    My download link in the email gave me the error - hope that didn't take up one of my 2 tries! Anyway I guess I'll wait a day or two to d/l.

    I signed up, but haven't gotten the e-mail yet. Does that take time, or should it have come already?
