On a 3 step in dev mode activation app, link does not load, and instead redirects me to the dashboard. Please help.

Hi Mars111555,

Are you referring to the steps in the document : Activate Developer Mode on your retail Xbox One console ? If I didn't misunderstand your issue, you didn't see the Msg box which ask you to enter activation code, right? What the type of account did you login the browser before you click the link ( Is it a developer account? If I misunderstand your issue, please point out and give me more details to analyze your issue.

Best regards

Yes, I do not have a message box where to enter the activation code. I redirect to dashborad. How I can check account type?

Hi Maks111555,

If your account is a individual developer account, you should be required to pay $19 (or $99 for company account) when you register it. Specific registration procedures, you can refer to:The account signup process. If your account is not a developer account, you may need to register a developer account first.

Best regards
