Could not acquire a developer license

Reading Time: < 1 minute

When you execute a Powershell script, you receive the error below and the script fails. I have seen this occur on a Windows 10 device when attempting to install the Azure VPN Client via Powershell.

Error: Could not acquire a developer license

To resolve, click the start menu on your Windows 10 device and search for settings. Click Settings, Update & Security and then from the left pane, select the option For developers

Turn on Developer Mode

Retry running the script again

When done, disable developer mode
