User is offered the "Use Starter Edition" option when opening a project with an invalid license on disk:
Steps to reproduce:
1) Ensure invalid license is in place (IE: touch c:\ProgramData\MonoTouch\License\monotouch.licx)
2) Open VS, create a new iOS project.
3) Invalid workflow dialog displays "Use Starter Edition" option.
X.A 4.8.0-9 (bc182ac2)
X.I. VS 1.3.246 (9e3221fb)
I tested this issue using MTVS 1.6.53 and I cannot reproduce it.
Can you try again on the latest version?
I'm still seeing this on 1.6.53 (c3eac7b8):
Bo are you sure you have only an invalid license on disk, and nothing else? That dialog is showing the expired trial workflow, which would also be wrong in the case of an invalid license. Also make sure you are logged into the IDE with an account that has no expired or valid licenses.
Sorry I misunderstand the invalid license. I am using an expired trial license so the dialog is showing the expired trial workflow.
We still have this issue in MTVS 1.6.53
To reproduce this issue, you also need to login the IDE with an account without any licenses, expired or active.
Could you please post details of an account I can use to reproduce this so I can determine if this is something the VS team can change or I need to ask the activation team to do it,

Here is the account information:
Or you can just create a new account.
Hi Peter, BoPang,
I'm not able to repro this at all. I've even tried being logged out of my account and deleting all licenses and still not saying any indication of Starter anywhere. I'll ask others on the team to try to repro.
To repro this issue, you need login with a new account without beginning trail or have other license.
Here is the step to repro:
1. Delete all license in c:\ProgramData\MonoTouch\License\
2. Create a invalid license in c:\ProgramData\MonoTouch\License\ by adding a new empty file named monotouch.licx
3. Open Visual Studio 2012, create a new account and login with it.
4. Create a new iOS project.
Thanks for the repro steps Bo Pang.
The fix for this should be part of this build
When wrench gets round to actually building it.
Based on comment 9, marking as RESOLVED FIXED
Today we have checked this issue and follow steps mention in comment 8, but now when we put invalid license on disk & open VS and login with an activated account then invalid license is replaced with current active account. Now the functionality changes, so unable to reproduce this issue any more.
Hence closing this issue.
