Cannot submit 8.1 app, need an Active Windows account message 5001 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I received a message in the Dashboard yesterday that I need an active windows account for WP 8.1 apps. I assumed that my account had expired which makes sense because it does so in April, so went to through the process of paying again, which went fine. If I look at the subscription info for my account, however it states that renewal is expiring the day after I paid (which is today), which is strange because I have now paid. It should say something like, Active I would think.

    I have now added a WP 8.1 xap but it contains a warning that I need an active windows account (5001). I am stuck here, since I have already paid for the renewal of the account.

    What can't it see that my account is now active? What am I missing?
