Wsvr0026i error occurred while validating product license
Please reinstall SQL Server to correct this file." I've run the installation repair utility and that didn't fix the problem.
I can connect to the instance using sqlcmd and I can launch VS2008.
Experienced this after upgrading from Windows 7 to 8 then 8.1 (didn't test with just 8).
The issues persists with 2014 CTP CTP2 so clearly isn't an issue with the system (registry is my guess).
