I was looking through my old product keys which I got from Microsoft Imagine for không lấy phí during my university days, & I found "Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2017" product key amuốn them.

Bạn đang xem: Visual studio

I tried to lớn google around lớn find more information about what is supported for this license và I couldn't find any useful information about it. I assume it is a standalone license lượt thích what Visual Studio Professional offers, but all I find on the internet is subscription based license for Visual Studio enterprise.

My question is, is there such thing as a standalone (non-subscription based) license for the Visual Studio Enterprise 2017 IDE? Does this mean once I install VS Enterprise with this product key, I get lớn use it permanently with all the features that Enterprise version offers without having lớn pay any subscription fee?

I hope some kind souls can enlighten me regarding this. Thank you very much.

If it's a key you received that isn't linked khổng lồ an MSDN subscription, then yes. You can use that key lớn install VS2017 Enterprise without any rights to tăng cấp khổng lồ the lachạy thử version (that comes with the MSDN Subscription).

I would double-check the terms of the license as they may vary depending on your type of usage.

To be honest, I'd look into Visual Studio Community Edition if the only thing you're doing is learning, trang chính projects, or small scale development. It's không tính phí and it still has tons of features. If you need to lớn compare what is/isn't included compared khổng lồ Enterprise, you can look at the Compare Matrix.

Does that help?

Thank you for the enlightenment, I appreciate it. I think it is as what you mentioned, it is not tied lớn any MSDoanh Nghiệp subscription. I agree that Community edition would be more than enough for my personal use. I just found this key the other day và thought it would be a waste leaving it around and not activating it but at the same time, I don't want khổng lồ pay for any subscription fee. Thank you so much for your help!

The imagine program was for educational & non-commercial use. Presumably only legal while you were studying.

If you were issued a code it will probably still enable full functionality. its just the way they work.

You may as well just install the latest community its không tính phí under the same restrictions.https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/community/

if you actually need the enterprise functions you should subscribe - there will be downloads for 2017 in the subscriber portal if you need backwards compatibility for some reason.

Thank you for the reply. I was just wondering whether I can use it without paying any subscription fee or anything since the sản phẩm key is just laying around there not being used. I agree that Community would be enough for my use.
