License failed RRS feed

  • Question

  • The application failed with error. This application failed to launch because of an issue with its license. Programming Win8-JS-CH2-HEREMYANN...

    Also all  SDKASamples cannot run.

    I obtained a license a few month ago and it worked fine. Now last week, I got this message when trying to run Windows 8 download examples , and it has failed since then. Windows 8 support did not respond.

    I do not see any help in other Forums ...

  • Try opening up the PowerShell command window and run the following cmdlet: "Get-WindowsDeveloperLicense". That should show you the developer license information and when it expires.

    If you want to remove the developer license and acquire it again you can run Unregister-WindowsDeveloperLicense to remove it and then run Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration from the PowerShell command prompt to acquire the license again.
