Not sure how much time you've spent on this, but at some point I reckon it is better to stop spending time on it and get a definite answer.
To find a definitive answer and resolution, you can call Microsoft Support directly. I've done it a number of times when the issue is urgent and could not wait, or when spending more time on it was not a wise choice.

If you email, it is $99, and if you can effectively communicate via email, that's a good option too.
