A quick tip and slight deviation from my normal schedule of a Monday morning post:
Recently my Microsoft Dynamics Windows 8 Concept App displayed an X in the bottom right hand corner and I was no longer able to launch the app:
When this happened to me last time, I just reinstalled the app and that renewed the licence for me. This time however I decided to do some research and came across this article by Tom Barnes. Fortunately renewing the licence is really simple:
- Run PowerShell as an Administrator
- Search for PowerShell – right click and “run as administrator” or if using touch screen: select the app icon and drag slightly down and the app bar will open, select “run as administrator”.
- Run the following command:
- Enter your Live ID, Hotmail or Outlook.com credentials
If you are a partner and want to download the application you need to log into Partner Source and download the Microsoft Dynamics Windows 8 Concept Application from here.
