NAV 2013 First Error with License

Hi all,

After installing NAV 2013 RTC client doesn't get connected and throws the below error message.

Your program license does not permit you to run this version of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment. 
Contact your system administrator to upgrade your license. 

Reason For Error

I got this error because i have my old developer license (Developer License For NAV 2009 R2) uploaded on SQL Server.

The license does not support NAV 2013.


There are two ways to resolve the error -

1) For temporary solution import demo License file on the SQL Server that as shipped with NAV 2013 DVD.

2) For Permanent Soultion download the latest license file from Microsoft VOICE and upload that on SQL Server.
