Visual Studio 6.0 Prof. Ed. - Academic Version


At work I use Visual Studio 5.0 Professional Edition.  My son, a college student, picked up a copy of Visual Studio 6.0 Professional Edition Academic Version.  We loaded it on our home pc and it seems to work just like the non-academic version 5.0.

I know it must be crippled some how but I can't figure it out.  I'm sure one of you experts can give me the correct answer.  I would prefer a straight text answer but will accept a link if I have to.

Thanks in advance

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The only thing that is crippled is the price. EVERYTHING else is absolutely the same.

BUT, you shouldn't use it to build application that you will sell. It is for academic purposes.

Emoreau is correct, they drop the prices so students can learn the software, and they still make a few bucks.

Thanks for the replies.  I'm going to leave this question open for another couple of hours to see if I get any other comments.  Then I will probably accept emoreau's comment as the answer.

Thanks again.
