Hi

I had installed visual studio community on 30 PCs. Now when students open the application , it says: Licence 30 days trial( evaluation purpose only) your evaluation period has ended.
Please sign in to unlock the product.
Please see the attached screen, we have many students who will be using this program and I think asking every student to create Microsoft account will not be ideal .
Do I need to really create Microsoft account for ever student\Is there any other way to sort this \do I need to buy a licenced version

Any help much appreciated.
Thanks

If I create a single generic account  and ask all the users to sign into once account , will this work.

This will work but this means also that students can share source code / projects very easy through the Microsoft cloud. A personal account for each student would be better in this case.

@Grewin signing in to Visual Studio only "Synchronizes your Visual Studio settings – Settings that you customize, such as key bindings, window layout and color theme, apply immediately when you sign in to Visual Studio on any device. See Synchronized Settings in Visual Studio.", no code is stored on the Microsoft site.

@Frenando - when I was working with a recent version of Visual Studio, I could store my project in the Microsoft Cloud, don't remember the exact name, could have been Azure. Issue is when using one account, students can easily share code.

Hi lianne143;

I believe that will work but you need to know that all students will be using the same profile and so if one person changes the color scheme of Visual Studio it will change for everyone, maybe not what you want. I would have all students create an account of their own this way whatever changes they make only affects them and not everyone.
