Renewing windows embedded 8 developer license fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Last november I was able to renew developer licenses for our windows 8 embedded computers. However now that the license is expiring again soon, license renewal isn't working (tested with two different computers). Running Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration produces error 80072EFE and can't proceed to submitting login information. I have made sure I run powershell as administrator and the internet connection is working. Should the renewal work (or is the license server not in use anymore) and is there anything I can do to get our software working for one more year?

  • Please contact your Microsoft distributor to get help with the WE8S development licensing.
