Licencing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all,


    Can anyone tell me what is the difference between Visual Studio C++ 2005 and Visual C++ Express Edition 2005, in terms of licencing? I already have Visual Studio 2005 but the company i work for use Express Edition. Do i need to use Express Edition for licencing issues or can i continue to use Visual Studio?


    Thanks for any help,

  • There shouldn't be any differences. The Express edition is provided for free and is lacking a few features. The higher versions have what Express has and more. There is nothing different in the programs they produce and there is nothing limiting what projects that you open with what. If there are then I'm doing naughty things myself.
