Windows Dev Center account

William Hallahan 21 Reputation points

To whom it may concern,

I paid 99 dollars to sign up for a Windows Dev Center account as a company.

However, instead of using my company e-mail to sign in, I have to use the Microsoft hotmail email that I use for my my Windows 11 Microsoft account to sign in and use features, such as registering an application name.

If I log in with my business email address, which is, I only see advertisements and cannot access any of the features that allow me to put an application in the Windows App store.

Is that correct, or is something broken?

It would be a VERY serious issue for me if later I find out that my account is messed up, and Microsoft won't sell my apps, or is treating me as a "personal" account - not a "business" account, which has potentially serious legal implications in the U.S..

Please reply at or call at 603-809-0315. (I am in the United States).
