Mass Distribution of VB Express Edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am a VB.NET developer and am planning on volunteering at a local school.  I will be holding a VB.NET workshop and would like to install the Express Edition on about 20-25 machines.  Since the Express Edition is free, I'm assuming there are no legal issues with me doing this, correct?

    Thank you!

    Somewhere in your installation there should be a document called EULA.TXT (End Users License Agreement).

    Perhaps that will clear up any questions?

  • It is free, however, I would not take any legal advice comming from any technical public forum!

  • As far as I know there aren't any licensing restrictions placed on VB 2005 express. In Microsoft's own words it is specifically "designed for hobbyists, students, and novice developers".
