Do we need MS license?

Posted 29 November 2013 - 08:21 AM

Hi all,

Just heard a rumour that a Microsoft License is needed to develop .net applications otherwise it is illegal.

I am a freelancer and use pirated version of Visual Studio.. Should I be worried for raid or some case of piracy from MS? Or no one cares???

Kindly reply pals.. :)

by the way, now shifted to open sources but still, for the sake of some of my old projects...

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You do not need a license to create and release .Net applications.

You do know that there are Express editions of Visual Studio that are free.
