    A simple way to access from outside the 17 countries (Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States) currently supported.

    The process involved setting your location to one of the supported countries both on your device and in Zune.net.

    Being outside the supported countries (Thailand) this is great. As I have two laptops, one for work and the other is personal. My personal laptop was purchased in the States and the Marketplace software was downloaded while in the States. I had access to Marketplace only with my US purchased and downloaded software. However now I have access on both computers since I have followed the below listed instructions. This worked great for me. I have already tried as I am writing this post.

    This is very interesting. What happens if you change your locale back later? Is your access cut off?

    Tried this yesterday and it no longer worked. Guess they must have figured out the country on the credit card didn't match the locale country. Sigh. If anyone manages to get it to work, please let me know.
