I think the reason why I don’t see the “Sign Up” link is because my location is not included in the list of countries they offer the program.

And also I’m looking for the information that says about the benefits a user can have in participating in the program and it is not displayed if your country is not supported because the sign up page doesn’t appear. A participating user can qualify for free software and or can win prizes in the sweepstakes but it still depends on the level of your involvement in the survey.

At the moment, for those people wondering if they are qualified to participate, the Windows Feedback Program is limitedly available to countries namely Brazil, Japan, and United States of America for users 18 years old and above.

The program is offered in 2 ways: The survey feedback program, and The automated feedback program.

The second part of the program, The automated feedback program, is for those users using Windows 7, and Windows 8 but excluding the RT version. The computer should also be installed with Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 and later.

You can download the latest version of Microsoft .NET Framework from Microsoft® .NET Downloads page.
