    Vista RTM Activation

    I was a Windows Vista beta tester and have received Windows Vista Ultimate
    edition as my complimentary copy by Microsoft for beta testing the beta
    versions of Vista. Anyways, I couldn't activate my Windows Vista using the
    product key provided by Microsoft in an e-mail sent shortly after filling an
    online survey. Can I get a new product key for my Windows Vista Ultimate
    edition? Please help me, pleasee....

    Are you using the correct key.
    Last I heard, the keys have not been sent.
    That is why many are leaving the key blank for the time being.
