If you downloaded a retail version of Windows 7 from the Microsoft Store site I need to know if it worked like when I downloaded the Beta version of Windows 7. Specifically, you order and then get an email that directs you to a download page on the internet. The reason I ask is that I live in Mexico and can't download with my Mexican ISP. I had the same problem with getting the Beta. I got the email through a friend's server in the U.S. and the email had a link for downloading that worked fine. I'm hoping it's the same for the retail but don't want to risk the money if I'm wrong.
