WindowsEmbeddedCompact2013.exe and Product Keys RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Microsoft Compact 2013 Team,

    many of us Compact 2013 developers noticed, that the retail product key of the Compact 2013 platform builder is not valid in the latest WindowsEmbeddedCompact2013.exe installer (my retail key belongs to a DVD with Update 5). Also, the older trial keys are not valid anymore (mine was from March 2015). The error message is: It appears the product key is not valid...

    To test it, I requested a new trial key, today. This trial key is valid with the Update 23 of Compact 2013.

    My question:

    Is there a way to use the retail key with the latest WindowsEmbeddedCompact2013.exe?

    Kind regards,
