Let’s clear up some confusion that arose when the new Dreamspark launched over how students sign up for the free App Hub account and save the $99 fee.
Where do I go to download software?
This has not changed, though the page looks different. Visit www.dreamspark.com to sign up for Dreamspark and download software
Do I have to use a Windows Live ID for my email address?
Dreamspark does not require you to sign up using a Windows Live ID, but, App Hub does require a Windows Live ID. So if you are going to publish a phone app the answer is Yes.
How do I save the $99 and get my free App Hub student account?
