What Happens to Windows 8 Apps Already Installed with a Current Expired Developer License?
Hey all, Just a short post here to let you know what I discovered recently. I logged onto my machine and noticed these 2 icons had an x at the bottom right-hand corner. I thought that is strange, I deployed these applications from Visual Studio 2012 with a valid developer license for Windows 8.
After clicking on the app, then it displayed this dialog box:
Then after I clicked on “Go to the Store”, it finally gave helpful information regarding my developer license for windows 8 apps had expired.
Fire open the Windows 8 Solution in VS2012 and simply hit “I Agree” on the dialog box and you will be up and running in no time.
PS: If you don’t do this and already have a solution open the VS2012 does provide a helpful message as shown below.
Thanks again for reading and Happy New Years!
