The Microsoft servers are getting hammered. It would seem this company can never have enough bandwidth to meet the demand. So every time they do a big release everyone has to go through the process of receiving errors left and right and not being able to download what they are trying to get. If your interested in testing the 2007 Microsoft Office System Beta 2. You can do so by clicking the link below.
At this time I keep getting several different errors when going through the process. The first time I tried I almost got all the way through answering all the questions. Then an error came up and the process couldn't be completed. Vista beta 2 is also available. But not to the public at this time. For those that have signed up for the public test. You should be getting an email soon with more details.
An alternate link may be here. If you click that link download will start. As far as I'm aware that file is ok. But I take no responsibility for you choosing to download the beta from that link. I've only provided it do to the Microsoft servers being hammered at this time.
The direct Microsoft link for the beta 2 is below
Download 2007 Microsoft Office System Beta 2 This will open up a download for the beta.
I've finally got my official copy and license key.
System requirements for the beta can be found here
Although Vista 5381 64 bit supposedly isn't supported. I was able to do a custom install with the Office exe set to XP compatibility mode. I've just tested this and the parts of Office I installed are working. The beta also has been activated online. Before using compatibility mode all I got where blue screens when trying to install this Microsoft Office beta.
