    Question

  • Is there a way of using this software without an account.

    I really do not want an account. (This is a burner. I am deleting it once I have this question answered.)
    I really shouldn't need one just to use the tool. I can understand it for the cloud, but screw the cloud.

  • Hi Burner1987,

    >>Is there a way of using this software without an account.

    No, if you want to use VS2015 community permanently, you need to sign in it with a Microsoft Account.

    Reference:

    Community Edition is telling me my trial has expired. Do I have to pay for Community edition?

    No, Community edition is free to use. We use the same infrastructure that allows you to unlock VS w/ an online subscription to manage the requirement of signing into Community edition so some of our strings overlap cross these scenarios. Trial here means the period you can use the community edition before you must sign in to fully unlock the IDE.

    Best Regards,

    Lake Xiao
