Visual Studio licenses expired in VM

ajtajt GBUniversity ✭✭

I'm using the Xamarin VMs to take the classes. When I launch Visual Studio on then, it says that the licence has expired. Is there any way to activate it, or will I have to reinstall VS? Given it's on the VMs, I'm guessing I must be missing a trick.

I'm a VS Pro user, but don't have a VS Ultimate licence, so can't just activate it with my own key. VS Pro 2013 doesn't even have an install key IIRC.

Obviously this is only an issue for the x102 classes (I presume) as I can use Xamarin Studio for the remainder.

    Hi Andrew,

    The Visual Studio license was a trial for 30 days, and it has indeed expired. I'm sorry - that's my fault; I thought it was a 60 day trial like the Windows OS. Just set the clock for the VM back by a month (January) and it will work just fine.

    We'll look into updating the VM - thanks!
