Visual Express for my workplace?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I am currently building the a small web application for team using VS express. The application allows me to monitor training that have been given to agents as well as training that have to receive.

    Is it really possible for to use it VS express to do it? or I need a proper  an enterprise version with a licensed database? at the moment, I am just VS Express local database.

    Is this illegal to use these MS tools for such things, although I am not making money at all?

    Thank you

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    As far as I know, you can use the VS express edition in your condition. Please have a look at the part ‘Commercial use of Express products’ in this page:

    **Visual Studio Express products are available at no charge and may be used for commercial, production usage subject to the license terms provided with each product. For example, you can use Express for Windows to create apps that you can then submit for sale in the Windows Store.

    If you used the VS 2015 express versions, you can also take a look at the VS express 2015 EULA description:
