Ordering the upgrade
To order the Upgrade software:
Find your upgrade form, and go to Order Your Upgrade page on this website
Enter the offer form code and submit. The website should show you the Vista edition and the 32 bit or 64 bit platform that shipped with your computer's offer form.
Make sure this matches what you have for the computer you are upgrading!
Click on the This Edition Is Correct button.
If it is not correct, then click This Edition Is NOT Correct. You will be prompted to contact Microsoft's program team.
Select Language. If it is there, select it and click the button for Order the Selected Upgrade.
Again, if the correct language is not there, click NOT Order the Upgrade button. Contact the Microsoft Program Team.
If this is your only upgrade offer, then click Proceed to Shipping Details. If you have additional upgrade forms, click the Enter another Offer Form Code button and repeat the steps. You can submit five upgrade forms at a single visit to this site, and up to 25 offer forms from any single shipping and email address.
On shipping details, select your destination country. Enter all the required information. Then click Proceed so you can review your order.
If the details are not correct, click to return to the shipping details page and correct the wrong information.
An order confirmation page will display your order ID. You will need that ID to check on your status. Print the page. You will get a confirmation email sent to the email address you provided. It will tell you the estimated shipping date and other order information.
You can change your shipping address before order processing. Go to the Track/Edit Your Order tab.
If you need to cancel for some reason, contact the MS program team. Since this is a constant refrain, here is where you should contact them if you need them. Also, this page has the tabs for ordering your upgrade at the top of the screen.
The cost for upgrading to the Windows 7 version of your Vista edition is $9.99 for shipping and handling. It will take 6-8 week after the scheduled release date of Windows 7, Oct 22, 2009. The updates for Windows 7 will be sent to people after Windows 7 is actually released.
If there are issues with your order, there is help information on the website. If your problem is not solved, contact the program team (and a very busy group of people they will be from the look of this).
If you have problems with the website, again contact the Program team for assistance.
