    Oh, good to know. :)
    I started my download in the browser and then tried to use it with a download manager, and it wouldn't work.

    Does this use the same product key as the Consumer Preview?

    Or where is the key?

    It doesn't prompt for a key.

    I don't think there's going to be a beta release of Hyper-V server specifically.
    Edit: Oh, there is :p
    I guess you can also install the core edition of Server 8 though and add the Hyper-V role and you get basically the same thing.

    can someone please post the pkeyconfig.xrm-ms file from build 8250.

    Metro is not the default interface in Server, it's there if you find the "Start" button.

    @100 I don't have test server yet for this so I am curious can you see a possible W8 server with a W8 tablet super remote for home theater set up in the future? Are there any notable advances where this scenario shines?

    Compared with most on this forum, I will be pretty late in installing WCP but I shall do it on this weekend.

    WCP x64 shows itunes as incompatible. Is that so??
    More important, do I need to install this:

    Visual C++ 2005, 2008, 2010 (x64)-I did this on win 7 x64 and wanted to know if some are now baked into WCP.
    Net 4 or perhaps Net 4.5 DP. I think Net 4.5 replaces 4 and so one needs to install only one. But if Net 4 is also built into, I can avoid installing net 4.5 altogether.

    Please help.
