These licensing terms are an agreement between you and Microsoft Corporation (or based on your place of residence, one of its related companies). They apply to the above software. The conditions also apply to all Microsoft services or updates for the software, except as long as they have different conditions. The Express is really free. It is not a 🙂 I would stop to wonder why you want to use it, because there are almost no cases where your company is not the big loser of VisualStudio. It is free because it is basically only useful for learning and making products that block you at a really high cost on the road. Development studios are free for any large platform. Don`t just jump into VS because you can get a free version. The odds are good, 99% of the time, you should run away.
This license applies to the Visual Studio code product. Visual Studio`s source code is available in github.com/Microsoft/vscode under the license agreement placed under github.com/Microsoft/vscode/blob/master/LICENSE.txt. For more information on licensing, check out our code.visualstudio.com/docs/supporting/faq FAQ. Visual Studio Express products are available free of charge and can be used for commercial production purposes subject to the licensing conditions of each product. I have 7 guys (including me) who basically use FDI to make console apps and web applications, let`s take a hypothetical case, in which 4 employees have installed Visual Studio Express (I just finished buying Visual Studio Professional for each of them so that this is no longer a problem for me) and the other 3 have Visual Studio Professional licenses, I`m doing some kind of license violation using the Express Edition, I ask the question because one of Microsoft`s partners said, „You can`t use Visual Studio Express for any type of development activity. The license is per user. I think you are limited to very small teams per organization. Visual Studio Express has been replaced by visual Studio Community-Edition, which is also available for free, but with another license. Compared to Visual Studio Express, the new license for open source licenses is more user-friendly, but less so for some open source developers. Community publishing works with plugins, a function that until now was exclusive for paid editions (professional and superior).
