No impression in AutoCAD 2008

Since Autodesk Impression is not for all markets so far you might end up on a non existing website if you want to learn more about Impression. The Autodesk Impression toolbar is showed floating in AutoCAD 2008 as default. When I clicked on one of the buttons it shows a dialog box telling that "This functionality requires that you install Autodesk Impression. Do you want to download it now? Download size: 200 MB". (Note that the download size is 282 MB, not 200 MB as the dialog box says.)

Clicking on the link "Learn more about Impression" in the dialog box below it tried to open http://www.autodesk.se/impression-toolbar that is a so called 404 page, non existing. It should rather look like http://www.autodesk.com/impression-toolbar to make any sense but inform that it is not yet for your market.

Other links that are hard coded into AcImpressionUI.dll that does not work so far are:
Another link is http://impressiontp.autodesk.com/Impression/Preview/ImpressionSystemTest.exe and it shows this text for me:
Location Error – Autodesk Impression Technology Preview Download Request
This technology preview is available only in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.  It appears you are accessing the Internet from a point outside the one of these countries, and therefore cannot access the download. 
We appreciate your continued support of Autodesk Impression.
Let's see how quick this will be fixed. Not a good impression right now.
