The unbelievable Metro dev lic renewing problem!

Posted in Trivia Windows8      Comments Off on The unbelievable Metro dev lic renewing problem!

This is simply unbelievable! As an early “Win 8 dev adopter”, I’m really stumped with the error I’m getting for the last couple of days. Being an early adopter means getting all sort of problems and being subject to changes which breaks everything you’ve written with the previous release. Sometimes, it’s not fun, but I can live with that.

What I can’t really understand is why I’m unable to deploy any app since Tuesday because my initial license is no longer valid and I’m always getting an error while trying to renew it. In order words, even though I want to write Metro code and provide feedback and ask questions in the forums, I’m simply unable to do (for 2 days now!) that because I can’t renew my license. This is not the way to bring more people to the platform! Want to use a lic system? Fine, but make sure that it works!!!

Did I mentioned that I’m pissed??
