Windows 8 App Store Development - License issues

I had some issues with gaining a developer's license. Visual Studio 2012 and Powershell were both unable to obtain a license. After some research I found that this seemed to be common to upgrades from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Additionally, I had already had Visual Studio 2012 installed before the update.

It seemed to be a variety of different error codes - many of which didn't apply to me.

I didn't find that windows update had any updates for me - required or otherwise. However, this seemed to fix the issue anyway:
