You downloaded Windows 8 CTP with developer tools, you start pre-installed Visual Studio 11 Express for Windows Developer Preview, you try to create a new application project – and get the error message:
"Installation of this application requires a Windows Store Developer license…"
The reason is: you need to install a developer license locally to your machine to get the development environment working properly.
- exit Visual Studio
- make sure your Windows 8 instance is connected to the internet
- restart Visual Studio and confirm dialog box informing about installation of developer license
The error message must be gone: enjoy it – otherwise the license was not installed properly.
