As I already mentioned, MSDN didn’t work. Talked to a “concierge” who told me it was an emergency maintenance gone wrong, that made downloads impossible. Now, I can’t even log on to the service. Funny, but if you try to go to the download areas, you start bouncing between msdn.microsoft.com and login.live.com. Back and forth, back and forth, until you get an error message. I made a little movie of the bouncing (yes, it’s Safari on OSX, but the same thing happens using IE on Windows.)
I’m not much impressed. Wonder when we’ll see MSDN alive again. BTW, shouldn’t MS use the “login.dead.com” service for things like this?
