  • I deployed one App on the Start Screen then i changed the System's Date like i made the Date as 20th Feb 2016, but still the App is Working and my developer license will going to expire in Nov 2013. So it concludes that expiration date of  developer license  does not depends on Local System Date.

  • The expiration date for the developer license depends on when you requested the license. The local system's date does affect checking the expiration so having the date set incorrectly may cause the license check to fail unnecessarily.

  • A problem with this is that if one wants to check performance more than 3 months ahead , for example if I wanted to check that a calendar app properly transitions from 2013 to 2014 , by changing the system time it invalidates the developer license and makes it impossible to test the app.

  • Sign out and back in or do a restart and see if it still works

  • Yes Sir, it still Works even if I change the Current Date to 20th Dec 2099.

  • Yes you're right. Which is interesting because a couple of months ago it wouldn't work for me, so I'm assuming the licensing check has been changed.
