VS Express 2013 trial expired?


Recommended Posts

A couple days ago I get a screen popping up in VS Express 2013 Desktop that says my 30 day trial has expired. There is a link that says "Check for an updated license" but when I click it, it just says "Failed to download a new license".

 

There is a Sign In button but it never asks for my username/pw and says it fails. I'm connect online fine. Anyone experience this? I've uninstalled and reinstalled a couple times already. Can't figure this out!

When I click the sign in button it doesn't prompt me for any id/pw so I can only assume it's using my Win 8.1 account that's link to my Live account and for some reason that's not letting me renew a license. ><

I haven't done anything with LE3.1 so far as I simply haven't got the time for it.However when I do the first thing is to write my self a VS2013 to CodeBlocks Project converter.Although VS2013 is very good, its slow, big and bulky (I use it at work each day). CodeBlocks is then quite slick and you don't have to bother about Sign In and expires. Further on you have the same IDE on both Linux and Windows. Of course I will share such a converter when and if I make one.

CodeBlocks actually already has the ability to import a VS-solution:

File -> import project -> MS Visual C++ Workspace / MS Visual C++ Project / MS Visual Studio Project / MS Visual Studio Solution

I haven't tried any of those yet but this might be worth a shot.

So on my laptop when I opened VS 2013 it gave me the same prompt, but this time when I clicked the Sign In button it prompted me to enter my id/pw and when I did it worked just fine. Not sure why it's not allowing me to do so on my desktop though.
