Create an xbox test account not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I am trying to create a xbox test account here:

    I fill in all details and click the Save button. Then nothing at all happens. Has been like that for a few days now.

    The only problem I can see is this:

    I try to create one test account, so I fill in 1 in the field "Number of accounts to create".

    The dropdown below the "Email Template" field stays empty. Even if I try to fill in 10 in "number of accounts to create".

    Why is this not working? The reason I want this is I am trying to activate the developer mode on my xbox one, so I need a test account.


    I connected to my xbox from my pc via the "Remote access" at https://xboxone:11443. Works. But once I log in and try to create an xbox live test account, I get the following error:

    Error code: -2147024891 (0x80070005)
    Message: Access was denied. Please ensure your console has the necessary permissions for this operation.

  • This is not an answer and shouldn't be marked as such, you've just copied the documentation.  No where there does it say what to do if you hit 'Save' and nothing happens.
