We can’t reserve a name at this time. Please try again later.

Third day of trying to register an App name for the Windows 8 Store:

Is anyone else out there having any luck?

FIX

No idea what made me try this but I copied the URL into another browser and this time, instead of going to the name your App page I was told to enter a security number that had been sent to my phone.  This I did and I was subsequently able to Name my App.

So it looks to have been some kind of security issue. 

NB I generally use IE (10) but flipped over to Chrome for the resolution.

  1. Thanks for the pointers.

    The question for security code is because of the new browser.

    I had the problem, was using IE. All I did was to manually log and and log in again – then I could reserve the name.
