Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration : A quota was exceeded.

    Question

  • I got the message that my developer license was not valid anymore on the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. With the powershell cmdlet Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration I should be able to renew it, but unfortunately I got the following message 'Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration : A quota was exceeded.'

    Restarting the machine, or uninstall existing license did not help. What to do?

    Thanks

  • The only 'solution' I could find was to re-install Windows8CP. Now it works again.
