The “your developer lic has expired problem”

Today, I’ve started getting another license error. I’ve tried to open a project I’ve built a few weeks ago and when I’ve hit F5, it simply redirected me to the store and shown me the following message:


Wtf? Another lic problem? why me??

Fortunately, I wasn’t alone in this one and I’ve found this post in the stackoverflow forums which did help me solve this problem. Instead of adding a string to the GUID, I’ve resorted to the Create GUID tool (VS->Tools->Create GUID) and replaced the GUID that was being used in the package name with a new one. And that was all it took to solve my problem.
