  • Pay for a license for what?

    If you've purchased VS 2012, or downloaded a free Express edition, you already have a license to use that product.

    If you are referring to license fees associated with distributing your software product, software you develop using Visual Studio is freely distributable to others without any additional license fees due to Microsoft.

    If the general answer above does not fit your situation, please explain your case in more detail.
