Description

The Unregister-WindowsDeveloperLicense cmdlet disables Developer Mode on the current computer. If a developer license exists on the current computer, this cmdlet also removes it. If you disable Developer Mode, you can no longer install and test your apps by using Microsoft Visual Studio. Any app that you deployed from Visual Studio no longer runs on the current computer.

You must have administrative credentials to disable Developer Mode. For more information, see Enable your device for development (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/xaml/dn706236.aspx) in the Microsoft Developer Network library. If you have not enabled Developer Mode for the current computer, this cmdlet returns an error.
