License cloud annual VS 2017 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I purchased an annual license for visual studio professional 2017, I would like to know if I can use it on laptops since I normally use it from a PC?
    I know the licenses are per user so it's possible ? since I use vs2015 c ++ as default
    and how should I install it on laptops to avoid problems?

  • Hi ValPagg,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    You can install and use the VS professional 2017 on your laptops, please check the VS 2017 License Whitepaper and check the following information:

    ***All Visual Studio subscriptions and Visual Studio Professional are licensed on a per-user basis. Each licensed user may install and use the software on any number of devices to design, develop, test, and demonstrate their programs.

    Meanwhile, the VS 2017 versions can work side by side with the VS 2015, so pleas download the VS 2017 professional to install.

    Best regards,
