    Question

  • i have tried approx all solution.

    1. stopped Network location aware service . that didn't work for me.

    2. disabled proxy settings. that didn't work for me.

    3. tried a temporary user for acquiring dev license.  that didn't work for me.

    I check with following commands at power shell and found my dev license had expired.

    C:\PS> Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration C:\PS> Get-WindowsDeveloperLicense C:\PS> Unregister-WindowsDeveloperLicense

    So i unregistered and again tried to get it but still it got failed. so now i don't have any dev license.
