Visual Studio 2017 License: Trial extension RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Team,

    My visual studio is showing that the license is expired. I can't work right now. I searched over the internet for solutions, I found some and I have applied them but the issue remains. I tried to run the ‘Developer Command Prompt for VS 2017 as administrator and run the command: devenv /resetuserdata to test, but it didn't work. I tried logout and login but didn't work, I tried to insert another email but didn't work as well. Kindly note that my visual studio is updated with the latest version.

    Please help me solve this issue to resume work.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    What's the edition of your visual studio 2017?

    Visual Studio 2017 professional/enterprise is not free to use, you will need to purchase them.

    Visual studio community edition installation prompts you for a license, you might have to sign in to unlock the IDE. Follow the instructions here.

    You can also try the following steps:

    1. Close all the VS instances.

    2. Delete: %localappdata%\.IdentityService\SessionTokens.json

    3. Reboot your machine, launch VS and sign in again to see if everything works fine.

    Best regards,

    Joyce

  • When you open visual studio can you click on your name and check for a new license?  Where you using a trial version that expired?  You might have to install community edition if you dont have a valid license for the VS 2017 edition you are trying to use (pro or enterprise)

  • Hi Mohamad Salman1991,

    It seems that your VS was not the community version, am I right?
