Any Remember The 64 Bit Trade In?

Recommended Posts

I recall hearing that Microsoft was trading in XP Pro for the 64 bit version staight up. I can't seem to find the sourse now that I have a untouched copy of Pro. Now,I'd like to do it and can't find it <_< Maybe I am just tired from work. But, I know the knowledge base here is pretty crap big :lol:

 

Any ideas?

I didn't know they were doing that. I think they had an amnesty on pirated copies of XP for a while, but I don't know if that's still on...

ARG...I aint no Pirate :P I did the Intel purchase thing and it comes with a XP Pro. But, I had heard that they had been doing a trade in thing to upgrade to 64 bit for the Pro versions.

They WERE doing this, when x64 first came out a few months ago. You could trade in your XP Pro copy for a copy of x64. There's one catch though, once you trade it in, you can't get it back. So if x64 doesn't work for you 100%, then you're effectively screwed.

 

As for the link, try taking a look in the forums. I know there were several threads on it at the launch of x64.
