The “your developer lic has expired problem”

Posted in Windows8      Comments Off on The “your developer lic has expired problem”

Today, I’ve started getting another license error. I’ve tried to open a project I’ve built a few weeks ago and when I’ve hit F5, it simply redirected me to the store and shown me the following message:


Wtf? Another lic problem? why me??

Fortunately, I wasn’t alone in this one and I’ve found this post in the stackoverflow forums which did help me solve this problem. Instead of adding a string to the GUID, I’ve resorted to the Create GUID tool (VS->Tools->Create GUID) and replaced the GUID that was being used in the package name with a new one. And that was all it took to solve my problem.
