Script error when renewing developper license

    Question

  • Hello,

    I need a specific side loaded app on Windows 8 for my work and I'm running into issues while trying to renew the developper license. I've been using the app without issues for a couple of months but now has come the time to renew the license on both my tablets (Asus Vivo tab RT). When I try to push the app via Visual Studio on my Windows 8 machine I get the "Please renew your license" pop-up on the tablet. When I click Yes on that pop-up a Live login window opens and I immediately get a script error (see attached screenshot). This is a standard IE script error (I can't post a screenshot or link in my message right now...). Hitting yes or no on that error will not load the rest of the page.

    I tried to login to my live account manually in IE first to setup a cookie but it didn't help. I tried rebooting, running windows update, trying on different user accounts. I can't find a solution. 

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Thanks!

  • Yeah I searched the forums before but didn't find the specific error anywhere else.

    You were right however that the issue was with the firewall. Because the way the corporate network is setup it's very difficult for me to test on a normal open line. I managed to work around the issue this morning and plugged both the computer and the tablet on an external line and the license renew went through straight away and everything works fine now. 

    Thanks

  • What is the error you are getting?  A text transcription would be easier to work with and doesn't require verification to post.

    If you search this forum you will find several threads discussing errors renewing the developer license. Common problems are the firewall and the time being off.

    Also note that if you really mean side-loading (as opposed to development testing) you don't need a developer license.
