  • Hi,

    Visual Studio 2012 had Professional, Premium and Ultimate editions.

    Right now I do not understand, what you mean with "is the same". The Visual Studio version is completly different so such a comparison does not make sense in my eyes.

    But maybe you mean change for MSDN subscribers? Then you are correct: The Premium and Ultimate Subscribers got the new Enterprise level on Visual Studio 2015. (So for example: I had a MSDN Premium subscription and when Microsoft updated Visual Studio in the past, I got the enterprise level "for free" / for the test of the time my subscription was running. Not sure if the subscription wa directly changed to an enterprise edition or if I see "Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN (VL)" because my subscription got renewed.)

    I hope this helped a little bit.

    With kind regards,

    Konrad

  • I've now answered this myself. So think I am right in saying the following:

    Under the old licensing model of MSDN subscribers, the Premium and Ultimate subscribers got the new Enterprise level on the upgraded Visual Studio 2015.  (As an example, a user with a MSDN Premium or Ultimate subscription now has available to them a 2015 Enterprise level license for the rest of the time the subscription is running; as shown in the MVLSC).

  • Hi Konrad,

    Thanks for your reply but I have now found the official answer which is on the MVLSC, so go to Subscriptions, then Visual Studio Subscriptions.  Click on one of your organisations subscriptions and there is a note.

    Note: Active Visual Studio Premium with MSDN and Visual Studio Ultimate with MSDN subscriptions have been upgraded to the new Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN.

    This is followed by a link to learn more:
