We discovered an issue this morning with Visual Studio 2017 RC licenses expiring early. We identified the root cause of this temporary issue and a fix has been deployed on the backend. Visual Studio 2017 RC should no longer block with a license expiration. If VS still reports an expired license click “Check for an updated license” on the dialog that appears to refresh VS’ license.

In addition, I have also gone ahead and cleaned up this thread. As mentioned before, we absolutely appreciate all of your help to get visibility quickly.
