How do I download "Windows 8: Prerelease Primer"?

By Oglesby1205 ·
When I click on the link for the download, it sends me to another page for the download, when I click that download, it goes back to the original page. Result: no download. I have even tried signing up for "TechReupblic Pro," with a $99 yearly fee. David Smith, davidlsmith@pol.net

Edit your original message and remove your E Mail address. TR is a Public Forum and your E Mail address is available to anyone who cares to look and every Bot roaming the Net looking for valid E Mail addresses.

Secondly Windows 8 is a Microsoft Product and you need to be registered with Microsoft to download it. TR has absolutely nothing at all to do with Microsoft except maybe for some of it's parent company owning shares in M$ maybe.

You can download the M$ Windows 8 Consumer Preview here

http://windows.microsoft .com/en-US/windows-8/download

As TR doesn't allow Spam to be posted you'll need to remove the space from between microsoft and the .com to get a working link

The "Windows 8 Prerelease Primer" appears to be a PDF file about the new OS, not the new OS itself. I posed this question because there was a link to download the "Prerelease Primer" at TechReupblic, but it did not work.

Well in that case

You'll need to post a link to the TR Web Page so we can see what you are talking about.

As URL's get the post deleted you'll need to insert a space between the Domain Name and the .com so it will post.

I have been experiencing the same problem with the "100 Windows 8 Keyboard Shortcuts" PDF. I am unable to download this file. It just takes me back to the Profile page.
