Developer certificate has expired. What is this?

    Question

  • I am preparing an 8 inch tablet (Lenovo Miix 2 8 (win8.1 OS) ) for testing for my customer.  I encountered this problem:

    1. I upload the Zip Win8 app to OneDrive

    2. Download the Win app from Miix 28 thru OneDrive.

    3. Run the App with Power shell to install.

    Install problem:

    -The developer certificate in apname_x86_Debug.cer has expired. One possible cause is the system clock isnot set to the correct date and time.

    What does it means? The date and time is correct. what are other causes?

    I had installed the same App in Surface tablet and it run!

  • Ooop! The date is wrong. To small to see. 20/8 and 20/9.

    Now it is installed. I will check the rest and post the problem if there is any.

    Thanks

  • Your development machine has also been prompting you to acquire a Developer License. You can do so using your Microsoft Account. Regularly the PowerShell install script should open the required dialog to acquire a Developer License as well. It will be valid for some time before it relocks (and needs to be unlocked again).

    You can not permanently install a Windows Store App (Metro App) without either pushing it through the store or signing it with a company certificate.
