Visual Studio 2019 – Cannot check for updated license

This post was originally published on this site

I am getting an error when trying to use Visual Studio 2019 community version on our VM/appstacks.

I am able to run VS2019 on our physical machines without having this issue.  This is after a fresh install.


Windows 10 x64 1909

View agent 7.12 & vcenter 7

Appvol agent 2.18.4


I did use the VMware OSOT which disabled NCSI.  I re-enabled that and set the reg keys in HKLMSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindowsNetworkConnectivityStatusIndicator back to 0.  I thought maybe the issue with Windows thinking it had no internet access was the issue but even with the taskbar icon showing Connect & Internet Access now I still get the same error when trying to update the visual studio license.


I can sign in fine and it recognizes my account, but trying to “update license” always results in the same error “We could download a license, check internet connection and proxy settings”


Has anyone else had this or similar issue?  Is there some other network setting I may need to re-enabled that was turned off using the OSOT?


I have not tried to install it on a fresh plain base image yet but that will be next on the list for tomorrow.
