    Not available for download from NZ based IP addresses 🙁

    dave – really?

    that’s weird

    i’ve emailed the folks in MS NZ to see what they can dig up

  5. Dave says:

    Yeah.  If I visit get.live.com using my NZ IP or signed in using my NZ based Live "passport", don’t get any of the betas showing up except for the "Family Safety".

    if I sign in using a passport with a US address, then I can see a lot of the other betas available, but when I actually go to download it, I get redirected to MSN.com.

    If I connect from a US based IP either not signed in with any account or signed in with my US account, then I can see and download the betas.  If I sign in with my NZ account from the US Ip address, then I can’t see anything.

    Guys have you tried the direct download links? The installer is only being tested in the markets noted above, hence the restrictions.
