Changes in Student Verification
Due to experiencing a high rate of piracy issues, we recently changed the verification methods for accessing the Windows Dev Center benefit. We will no longer be able to accept manual verification as a means to accessing the Windows Dev Center benefit. Students can leverage one of the four verification methods listed above to obtain their activation codes.

In order to ensure legal and legitimate use of the Windows Dev Center benefit we will no longer allow manual verification from students who are looking to obtain Windows Store codes. DreamSpark students who verify using the other verification methods: your school email address (domain), your school network credentials, a DreamSpark verification code, or an ISIC card.
