Error 0xc03F1014, Cannot obtain Dev license

    Question

  • Hello,

    I keep receiving this error whenever I try to obtain a Dev license for the Win 8 store. I did some research and many people were talking about how if you have an illegitimate copy of Win 8 or Visual Studio 11 you receive this error. I specificly went out and bought the windows 8 Pro, and I am currently using a Visual Studio 11 that I downloaded from Microsoft Dreamspark because I am a student, and I still keep getting this error. even when I did the clean install of Visual Studio 11 twice (erased the old with add/remove program then do fresh install) I still recieved the same error code. Is there any way around this?

  • Hi,

    Was this just a temporary issue, or were you able to fix it?

  • Other people were able to fix it by:

    1) Checking the system date and time (it was ahead on their systems)

    2) Go to services and disable NlaSvc service. After doing it retry getting license and your should get prompt for live id.

    HTH,
