[W8.1] Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm developing a store app using VS2013 on a W8.1 desktop.  I have tested this on W10 tablets and now I want to test on W8.1 tablet.  

    The problem is that the cmdlet Show-WindowsDeveloperLicenseRegistration is not available on this tablet.  

    Is there a website from which I can download whatever module is required for this?

  • Hi SmokeAlarmPizza,

    Please see the document Get a developer license, you can Get a developer license by using Visual Studio and can also renew a developer license whenever you're using the Visual Studio IDE. If you're using Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows, choose Store, Acquire Developer License on the menu bar.
