License error (0x00000040): Cached online license contents are corrupt. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Our company buy almost 6 months ago the Microsoft Action Pack that includes Visual Studio 2013 with online login to Access the program.  A few days ago I started having this error message and I cannot access the application anymore.  Any advice on how to fix this?  I already contacted the MSDN support and they ask me to create a topic in this forum for help.  Or they will have to ask me for small fee($$$) to resolve their problem.

  • Hi,

    I downloaded VS Express 2013 for Windows Desktop and installed it.

    Open VS->Help->register product->check for an updated license

    If you still have the error, please restart computer and try signing out. Then click "Check for an updated license".
