Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration CommandNotFoundException powershell windows 8 developer preview RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't get my developer license through command prompt. When i enter "Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration", power shell says


    The term 'Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again. At line:1 char:1 + Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration:String) [], CommandNotFoundExc   eption    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException


    What should I do ?

    In the User Account Control (UAC) dialog box, I have entered Live ID but I m getting error like "The user has not been granted with this type of logon at this computer".

    What should I do ?

    I have successfully connected my Live ID with my Windows 8 Developer preview

  • To clarify, you are referring to the original Developer preview? You should be using the Release Preview build which has that PowerShell cmdlet. The original Developer Preview used another process to obtain the developer license. The MSDN content on that process has been removed with the new preferred PowerShell process.

    If you must use DP, then you might look for some old forum threads such as this.

    The VS release for DP would automatically aquire the developer license for you as well.
