Windows 8.1 developer license registration failed with error code 080080005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    I have recently refreshed my tab which was having windows 8.1.

    strangely after refresh my tab rebooted to windows 8.

    I again with much difficulty upgraded it to windows 8.1.But when I tried to register my developer license it was giving error :"error code : 80080005 server execution failed".

     The same procedure when I tried to do for Windows 8.1 Desktop it was successful.

  • Please try the powershell cmdlets found here to renew the license:

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
