Passed my VCP-510 exam!! Question about free Workstation license

Yay! I passed my exam yesterday.

I got the email today to authorize my certificates etc...  I was wondering because the license I received for VMware Workstation is for version 9. I would assume since 10 is released that would be the license that I'll be getting.

Does anyone have info or know who I can direct my query to? (email came from noreply@vmware.com so I can't reply to it to ask the question).

Best Regards.

Here's the response I got.

Regarding your Case XXXXXXXXXXX:

Hello XXXXX,

Currently Workstation 9 is only available as a benefit for VCP5-DCV certification program. If you would like to upgrade to VMware Workstation 10, you can purchase an upgrade for $119 US Dollars at the link below.

I passed my VCP5-DCV in July.

I opened two cases about the Workstation license.  The first question was regarding Workstation 10 license upgrade and I received the same response as yours.  The second case I opened was regarding receiving the initial Workstation 9 license "benefit".  Their response is:

There is currently an overwhelming response of certifications that are being processed and we are currently out of workstation keys to provide to any new certified candidates. We invite you to download the free trial until we can provide the complimentary workstation keys. Please note we are working diligently to have them generated and sent to everyone as soon as possible.

5 months later, I still haven't received a key.
