  • License will renew however Visual studio will no longer run my app I am working on. Tells me unable to activate please try later. If Microsoft wants app for windows 8 why would you need to renew a license once a month. Know I can no longer work on my app

  • Try uninstalling the app from the Start screen and run from Visual Studio again.

  • That worked!

    Thank you so much.

     My experience with windows 8 has been that all the copy protection is killing the honest people. Been have problems with installs with windows 8 and logins etc...   (and I am a MCSE). The best part is I could get a pirated copy of Win 8 and other software from a torrent and could avoid all of this. I have been having so many problems related to this; I might just have do that. Some of the problems are still not solved after 3 months. I can not image the average person trying to solve win 8 problems; The technical support line is a joke, the last guy logged in to my computer and it would not reboot after that LOL; I had to reinstall the system. I think MS has to follow Apple when it comes to this stuff, average guy looks at the trouble and runs to Apple.

    Thanks one more time.
