    I know there have been a lot of people having the same "unable to enter the requested store" error when trying to enter the apple developer store. I have finally found the cause and the fix.

    When following the links from developer.apple.com I would end up at:
    http://developer.apple.com/Membership/usa.html

    But this is not the sending referrer that the dev store wants to let you in. You need to come from:
    http://developer.apple.com/membership/usa.html

    note the lower case m in the second link. Let's hope that apple can fix this soon. I don't know why it worked for some people but not for others, but by using the second link it works consistently for me now.

    Hope that helps everyone!

    Amazing how a simple thing like that can screw things up. I've e-mailed the ADC folks through their "Contact ADC" form to let them know of the problem. I suggest that others do the same to make sure they make the simple fix to this annoying problem a priority.

    Agreed. I have done the same. If you were having a problem with this, drop them a line and let them know it really is frustrating!
