    I have a weird question: Is it necessary to sign up for 8.1 GDR1 DP with the same account as used for the April 8.1 preview? What about those who made an app studio account, updated to DP, and forgot their password etc. ?? Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question

    And will it cause problems later with Cyan?

    Didn't affect my Cyan on 1520. As for forgetting your password for app studio there should be a password recovery option on the website.

    Make a new Microsoft account, sign into app studio, register. Then uninstall and reinstall preview for developers. And sign in. Success!

    That's an interesting idea, but will it cause problems if I simply create a new App Studio account? I don't want to change my central Microsoft account...

    Why would your central Microsoft account change in the first place.Try the idea first and see what happens.

    Well that's what you do to make a new app studio account however your phone is already registered with your old one. Your central Microsoft account can never change unless you reset the phone and sign in with another one.
