There is a valid license but Bamboo advised that the license for Visual Studio has expired and the following error is received in the build log:

30-Apr-2015 13:31:05 	"G:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0"

30-Apr-2015 13:31:05 	Error in script usage. The correct usage is:

30-Apr-2015 13:31:05 	where [option] is: x86 | amd64 | arm | x86_amd64 | x86_arm | amd64_x86 | amd64_arm

Visual Studio is expired the Account Settings dialog will open automatically for the license to be added. Otherwise, go to File > Account Settings and manually add the subscription key.

To make sure that the user that's being used to start Bamboo service is able to see the license, you have to log in with that user before adding the license to Visual Studio.
