Script Error Screenshots
OS Environment: Windows 8.1 Pro
Hardware: HP PRO Tablet 608 or any PC with Windows 8.1 Pro
This issue is happening from November 7, 2016 on wards.
When installing Xamarin Windows 8.1 application on Windows 8.1 Professional edition using the powershell script file, the script attempts to download developer license from Microsoft, it prompts for agree to the terms for license. After agreeing I get the following script error
An error has occurred in the script on this page
Error: Script error
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page? Yes/No
Clicking on Yes; blanks out the dialog and unable to get license and we are unable to install our app on the device.
We are in tight timeline, the app needs to be tested in QA environment. Anyone have workaround for this issue?
This can be simply reproduced with the following step if PC/device with developer license already installed.
-Open Powershell in Administrator mode, Run the command “Unregister-WindowsDeveloperLicense”, this removes prior license. Now try install Xamarin app using powershell script and you will be able to reproduce this error.
I think your issue is with a Xamarin.Forms Windows 8.1 app.
Changing the product to get the right eyes on it.
This does not appear to be a Forms issue and was presumably resolved, per this MSDN link: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/8679af81-0ce6-4516-b4d9-d5b25e9b7e06/problem-with-renewing-the-developer-licence-in-visual-studio-2015?forum=visualstudiogeneral
The timeline fits in with this bug report's original filing.
