Haven't receive Windows 8 Media Center product key

I've purchased and downloaded Windows 8 Pro upgrade and it came with a link to get Windows Media Center free.

I went to the link filled in my email address and it said an email would be sent to me containing a product key.

This was about 6 hours ago and I still don't have a product key email. I've checked my deleted, junk, and other folders and no email has arrived.

I've now tried 3 different email accounts and still no product key.

What's going on?

Hi thestonefox,


A recent reply to another thread http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-windows_install/i-have-not-received-my-product-key-for-my-windows/ecf1ec5a-231b-42e0-bb88-b2d9f21ad3a2 suggests that one needs to wait at least 24 hours before the key is received.


Remember that Windows 8 has only just been released, so there will be many thousands of people trying to obtain both the software and the free Windows Media center product key.
