Am working on uploading my team project on visualstudio.com.

As required, I have to create a Hotmail account. After completing the registration process, I got this error:

Sign Up Error 450
You've reached the daily limit for creating Microsoft accounts. Please wait a day and try to sign up again.

This is the first account I try to create today. If there is a limit on the number of outlook.com accounts you can create per day, then I'm afraid this is the first attempt for my case.

What can I do to create the account?

  • Try creating one using Tor browser, in case it's limited by IP address and others sharing your IP have used your quota. – Thomas the Tank Engine Dec 12 '13 at 12:42
  • Same here for a live.com account. I have not created any kind of Microsoft-related account for years, but I have signed in with a different account just before, maybe that matters and the error message is just badly formulated? – nic May 2 '14 at 2:16

There is a 3 sign up limit per day (maybe full 24h).
