    Dear Geo_midi,

    Any Product Keys obtained through Visual Studio Subscription (formerly MSDN) can only be used in the Testing / Development environment. Please check this out.

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/cc150618.aspx

    Download the Visual Studio licensing white paper.

    Additionally please contact Visual Studio Subscription customer support for more information.

    Thanks,

  • In the latest MSDN licensing document which can be found here:

    https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Visual-Studio-2018-Licensing-Whitepaper-November-2017.pdf

    The following statement can be found:

    Production use of Office Professional Plus 2016
    Office Professional Plus 2016 can be used by licensed users of Visual Studio Enterprise Subscription or Visual Studio
    Enterprise – annual on one device for production use.

    Is Viso covered under this statement.  It's just hard to believe that the one tool that's actually helpful for development (UML diagram) is not included in a Enterprise Development Subscription.
