Hi All,

Have upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my Laptop. All is good except i cant use Visual Studio 11 due to the fact i cannot acquire a "developer license"

In other websites people have directly attributed this to upgrading from Windows 7, unfortunately I cannot clean install this laptop so need to find how to get the License as is

Does anybody know the resolution to this issue?

What i get is that you try to get the developer license and it fails asking you to retry (never works)
