Dupe of #742070 which has been closed for some reason.
I want to experiment with developing a Windows Store (nee Metro) app. Our work environment (large govt. department) is such that out dev machines cannot be internet connected.
So I got a rude surprise after going to all the effort of installing Win 8 + VS 2012: I need an internet connection to fetch a "developer license". Are you serious???
When will this be resolved, this is a show stopper for us? The fact this limitation exists at all makes me wonder how much thought goes into these systems. Please stop putting barriers in the way of me doing my job.
And don't give me any B.S. about this being a security issue, looks to me like a piracy prevention tactic. Remember how that backfired in the past with likes of WGA etc??
