Get Developer License without internet connection


  • One of my customers doesn't provide internet access to developers for security reasons. Is there a way to issue the developer license on the developer's machines using any other enterprise tool like System Center or GPOs?

  • Hi Pratap,

    Acquiring a developer license requires internet access. Microsoft is aware that this is an issue for some customers.

  • so you know that this is an issue but wont do anything to fix this? I dont have fixed internet connection at home. this means I cant develop windows store apps without internet connection. Can you even comprehend how absurd this is????

  • Hi sinand99,

    You do not need a fixed internet connection. You need the connection only when acquiring the developer license.

    We are aware that this is an issue for some customers and are investigating ways to mitigate that in the future.
