Cannot repro on tip of license-sync. Assuming it was fixed by some of the other commits today. Please reopen and include log files if it happens again!

I found a repro. This happens when the user is logged out and both licenses exist on disk and are invalid.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

MTVS 1.8.359

Now when we click on deactivate option then it redirects us to "https://taco.xamstage.com/account/my/subscription/computers"
and we can deactivate account without any error. And we can also logout from account via click on logout option.

Hence closing this issue.
