  • Hello,

    We are working to make the contents of the CD available online, but as of right now they are not available.  Is it possible for you to reach out to a friend or colleague who also might have gotten a kit to get the CD contents?  If you're not able to find it, please shoot us an email at sensext _at_ microsoft.com and we'll see what we can do.
