    Guys

    Passed my 70-271 on monday, realised my prometric account was setup with my work email account and any mails would get blocked, so changed to my personal email account today.

    I'm wondering if I will have missed the MCP ID already as I saw couple of mails blocked already ?


    Sorry for the trivial question.

    If in doubt, phone the Microsoft RSC.

    They're usually pretty helpful.

    Thanks guys, I emailed prometric and they replied saying it takes upto 7 working days to even submit the result to microsoft. Guess I'll give it a couple of weeks.

    I remember that I first received my MCP id in the mail, but that was in '99. I don't know if those welcome packets are still shipped out... I know at the time it took a loooooong time to get my card.

    Hi mate,

    The following message is displayed on MCP member site at present. (which you wont have access to :rolleyes:)

    "During the dates of November 29 through December 6, 2007, you will not be able order welcome kits or certificates from this Web site or from your Regional Service Center. This downtime is due to a system upgrade that is required to reduce shipment times for your MCP materials. Be assured that your transcript will continue to be updated during this time. We apologize for this inconvenience as we work to improve your experience with Microsoft Certification. If you were affected by the recent delay in welcome kit shipments, we are pleased to let you know that all outstanding kits have now been shipped. "

    A similar message is also displayed on the prometric site concerning the transmission of recent exam results to microsoft.


    Looks like the wait begins, hope this helps.

    Here is how to do it!

    Create a new Microsoft login using a any of these if you aint already go one....Hotmail address, MSN e-mail address, or Microsoft Passport, these are Windows Live ID's.

    (This is the number one reason you don't get an email from MS is that you didn' have one of these. Change you candiate email address to one of these before registering for an exam in the future!)

    Get your MCP Number from your exam test result sheet, or login into your testers site and get it from there.

    Create your Live ID if you ain't already got one.

    Goto http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mc...tructions.mspx

    Follow the instructions and associate your login with your MCP number.

    Use your MCP & Live ID to Login to generate a temporary access / reset code, this is emailed to you.

    Leave it for 48 hours to fully replicate, then you can login and order your welcome pack / paper certs. Using your temporary code / live ID / MCP number.

    Once you've done that you just use your live ID & password.
    All a bit long winded but hey it worked ok for me :blink

    Thanks spilly, is it actually called "mcp number" on the test result sheet ? just I can't see any mcp number on it and nothing on the website either. Never thought it would be this hard to get the certificate lol.

    I'm in the same boat as you Bambino - just got my Prometric print out in front of me, but no MCP ID as yet - had a check on the Prometric site and nothing so far (its only been 3 working days) - did you get yours resolved in the end?

    Sorry Derkit, only just seen this.

    I emailed the RSC emeamcp@msdirectservices.com with my full name, exam details date etc, from my hotmail account, within a day they had emailed me my MCP number and account ID, then I just requested the welcome pack from the website.

    Would give that a go mate.
