Wish licence do I need?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am working for a company and like to develope a small tool in C#. I thought to use Visual Studio for that, but I wonder wish licence do I need now?

    We (the company I am working for) aren't developing software, so we do not need a development enviroment all the time. Just now for this small project for intern usage. Could it be okay to use Visual Studio Community for that?

    I hope you could helb me soon.

    Thank you,

    Konstantin

  • Hi ! 

    This is what you should know about companies conditions for using VS Community :

    For organizations

    An unlimited number of users within an organization can use Visual Studio Community for the following scenarios: in a classroom learning environment, for academic research, or for contributing to open source projects.
    For all other usage scenarios:
    In non-enterprise organizations, up to five users can use Visual Studio Community. In enterprise organizations (meaning those with >250 PCs or >$1 Million US Dollars in annual revenue), no use is permitted beyond the open source, academic research, and classroom learning environment scenarios described above.

    You have all informations in this link : https://www.visualstudio.com/license-terms/mt171547/

    Hope it will be useful.

  • Hi K. Lanfermann,

    For your question, generally speaking, VS Community can be used for commercial purpose.

    You could absolutely use the it to develop a small tool for your company internal use.

    Reference:

    Organization licenses:

    If you are an organization, your users may use the software as follows:

    Any number of your users may use the software to develop and test your applications released under Open Source Initiative (OSI) approved open source software licenses.

    Any number of your users may use the software to develop and test extensions to Visual Studio
