Unable to Activate Windows Store App - license issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Visual Studio 2012 to develop a Windows Store App.  When I try to build the solution, I  get an error message that says: Unable to activate Windows Store app. (Error code) 'This app failed to launch because of an issue with its license.

    I only get this issue for an existing solution that I am trying to examine.  I renewed my developer license earlier today.  I've already restarted the solution/Visual Studio and all that nonsense.  Any ideas?

  • Uninstall the app from the Start Screen and then build in VS.

  • Hi, I just had experience this similar problem.  And your suggestion had resolved the issue.  But my question is, why is this happening?
