  • Hi Pankaj Gokhare,

    Visual Studio Community Edition is FREE, but you need to sign into Visual Studio with your Microsoft account to use it permanent.

    As Microsoft mentioned here: https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/support/visual-studio-faq-vs.aspx

    "Community edition is free to use. We use the same infrastructure that allows you to unlock VS w/ an online subscription to manage the requirement of signing into Community edition so some of our strings overlap cross these scenarios.

    Trial here means the period you can use the community edition before you must sign in to fully unlock the IDE."

    So to solve your problem just sign in to Visual Studio with some of your Microsoft email address and you will be good to go.

    Hope this was helpful for you... best luck with programming and using Visual Studio.

    Best regards!
