  • Hi!

    My current VS Pro license is connected to my company's Tenant and I want to setup my own "sanbbox" Tenant with the VS Pro subscription. Is that possible?

    ## I suppose you want to use the license connected with company for your personal computer. If I misunderstand, please feel free to let me know.

    As I know, the Visual Studio Professional license is user-based. The licensed user can install and use the software on any number of devices. But it is not recommended to do this because of some restrictions, for more details, you can refer to the following statement from the Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 Licensing:

    A developer with a Visual Studio subscription uses subscriber software at work during the day, but occasionally needs to develop at home as well, using a different computer. Under the Visual Studio subscription license, there is no difference between a PC at work and a home PC; the home PC is just another device on which the developer is entitled use the subscriber software. However, the restrictions for the subscriber software running on the developer’s home PC remain the same as in the work environment: the subscriber software installed on the home PC must only be used for design, development and testing purposes; and only other users with an appropriate Visual Studio subscription can use the software.

    If there is a need, we recommend you use the Visual Studio Community on your personal computer.

    BTW, in order to confirm more question about license, I recommend you could also directly call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist, and you can get more detailed information about the license from there.

    Have a nice day.
