  • There is no way to "force" a refresh of the licensing.  For users using a connected Microsoft Account -- the licenses will be refreshed automatically.  For users not using a connected Microsoft Account, the user can force a refresh to occur by going into the Windows Store, Going to Settings, App Update and selecting sync licenses.
