  • No paper/e-cert for MCTS on Windows 2008?

    It's already been 1 month + some time I passed 70-649 exam that is Upgrading MCSE 2003 credentials to Windows Server 2008. I keep checking my MCP member site to order welcome kit. But still not updated. No option to order "Welcome Kit".

    other people also havent received the kit. It seems like Microsoft discountinued sending paper cert for Windows 2008 or havent started printing 2008 certs. Atleast I was expecting to see e-certificate copy inside my profile. But its not there.
    How ever my transcript shows that I am MCTS on those 3 combined exams included in 70-649. I called Microsoft Education center but they dont have any updates.

    I wonder if anybody received certificate via psotal service.

    I can't speak for Win2K8 but when I took my TS and ITP exams in Vista there was some considerable delay in sending out the paper Certs. I received an apologetic email and 3 free exam vouchers (one per cert)
    It ended up as something like 2 months before the certificates arrrived

      Microsoft delay on the web

      Availability delay: Please note that welcome kits and certificates for some certifications are not yet available. We apologize for the inconvenience; we anticipate that they will be available for order no later than March 1, 2008. An announcement will appear in the MCP Flash newsletter, letting you know when you can order your kit or certificate from this page.

        MCP FlashFeb edition says Windows 2008 certs are ready to dispatch & yes any1 who already passed any exams on Windows 2008 can order there certs. I ordered my Windows 2008 certs 3 days ago. The options were unlocked to order windows 2008 cert.

        I wonder if Microsoft will give away free virtual labs of Windows 2008. They should give away goodies atleast to early certified professionals.
