  • Hi,

    the docuentation is quite clear about that topic:

    • You need at least SP15 to use Visual Studio 2015.
    • The Express Editions are not supported (in all versions). That simply means that other editions should work.

    The Community Edition offers the same plugin mechanisms as the commercial versions so all addins should work on the Community Edition, too.

    Just one small point that might be important for you but has nothing to do with your question: Take care: the license of Visual Studio Community is quite restrictive regarding use in enterprises - just in case that you wok in an enterprise and try to use it for non academic, non open source software.

    With kind regards,
