  • Hi Siva,

    As far as I know, VS2012 Ultimate is a fee edition of VS2012. To continue to use the product after 90 days, you must provide a valid product key.

    For information about how to How to: Upgrade from a Trial Edition of Visual Studio. Please take a look at the following document:

    In addition, you can also use VS2015 Community and VS2013 Community. They are both free version of Visual Studio.

    Best Regards,

    Lake Xiao
