Use only Real Information when Completing the Survey. Affiliates Have Sophisticated Filters to eliminate fake information and the download will not unlock. Using your real info will Increase your chances ten-fold of the Download Unlocking.
Confirm any confirmation emails sent to the email you used to while completing the survey.
Other Reasons Your Download Wont Unlock:
Your Ip Address may be blacklisted or already in the system of the affiliate you are trying to unlock the download with.
You may be able to Change you IP Address by resetting or simply unplugging your router or modem.
This is a extremely popular reason why downloads will not unlock.
Experiment with other browsers.
Try different browsers. Firefox is best, Internet Explorer is known for being difficult.
