Developer License Registration Issues

    Question

  • I can't seem to get the developer license to download to my laptop after an upgrade from windows 7. I've opened a new app project and I will get the popup asking to accept the terms. After accepting, nothing happens. I'll press debug and get the popup once again and press accept again and then get:

    Error 1 Error : DEP0100 : Deployment failed due to a Developer Licensing issue. 
    Not a valid Win32 FileTime.
    Parameter name: fileTime App1

    Also, I have attempted the powershell method for this with Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration and Get-WindowsDeveloperLicense. The Show pops the window up to accept and again nothing happens after clicking accept. The Get just informs me that I have no developer license.

    All of my software is sufficiently licensed including VS and Windows. I have the hotmail account that I created specifically for windows 8 and remain logged in throughout this attempt.

  • FWIW (which may be nothing), I've had the license key renewal fail a couple of times, but a cold boot fixed the problem. Have you tried that?

  • Thanks for the suggestion, but still no luck.

  • Is your system time set correctly?  I notice the original error referred to fileTime (but that may just be an artifact of having no license.)

    Other things to try: run as administrator, temporarily disable 3rd party anti-virus, use IE as default browser, repair installation of VS.

  • It seems Internet Explorer is the problem. I try to set IE as the default browser, as suggested, but it is nowhere to be found in the default programs list. I tried going into uninstall programs and turn on or off windows features and unchecked IE, restarted, then rechecked IE and restarted once again. Still can't set IE as default.

  • You know, I really like the IE interface. I much prefer it to Firefox (I won't use Chrome). But I sure wish IE actually worked. I've had to move to Firefox for posting to these forums, because IE won't handle the submit button. Yeah, the MS browser doesn't handle a MS website correctly. Irony so thick you could spread it on bread.

    Anyway (now that I have that out of my system <g>), Did you try repairing Visual Studio? Before I wasted any more time struggling with IE, I'd try that. I know jrboddfie listed that after making IE the default browser, but if a cold boot doesn't solve a Visual Studio problem, I try a repair. (Fortunately, it's not at all painful to do.)

  • I'm asking our VS team to give me some answers on this one.  I'll update when I know more.
