    Can't Change Win8 Logon to a PIN

    New install of Windows 8 on a new build. When I try to change my logon from my Microsoft Account PW to a PIN, Windows tells me that it "was unable to capture your PIN. Try again later." Of course, later never comes!

    Anyone heard of this issue and how I might fix it?

    I've been able to find two suggestions neither of which seem to work for everyone.

    one - Use Windows Refresh. NOTE: this requires you to reinstall all non-store applications.

    two - create a new local account.

    Sorry for nothing more definite.

    Thanks. I'm going to search a little longer and then I'll give these options a try.
