Can someone PLEASE email me back? I've tried sending an email as well as the online response form, and I've gotten ZERO response. I tried downloading this issue for a few days when the issue was released, each time it would fail at about 75%, and now it's saying that the link has expired so it will not download at all.



I purchased a one year subscription on 4/11/2013. This purchase was made through CC's website.

The website states that right after the checkout, the customer will receive two emails, one is the "order confirmation" and the other one a "download link". I received the "order confirmation", I have not received the email with the "download link" yet.

Several messages have been sent already and I have not gotten any response.

Please reply ASAP.

Thank you.
