    Hi Konstantinos

    I tried this, but the option to install VS2022 is not available when I clicked the Visual Studio Installer.
    It only offered versions of VS2019.

    I have a Professional License for VS2019.
    Do I need to buy a new VS2022 license to access that version?

    Thanks

    Hello @Dominic Raftery !

    I see so this not Subscription based right ?

    Is a standalone license ?

    THis thread https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/694109/are-2019-vs-pro-license-usable-on-vs-2022

    has similar question:

    If there's no active subscription, then the 2019 license can only work for VS 2019. Check the Stand-alone option here
    https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/pricing-details/

    I hope this helps!

    Hi @Anonymous

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    You can download the VS2022 setup file, install VS2019 and VS2022 side-by-side. It is not allowed to directly upgrade from VS2019 to VS2022 currently. 

    About using VS2019 license for VS2022, please refer to:

    If you have purchased a Visual Studio subscription and that subscription is still active, then you are entitled to the latest release of Visual Studio. (Ex. You purchased Visual Studio 2019, your subscription is still active, you are entitled to Visual Studio 2022)

    If you have purchased a standalone license to a previous version of Visual Studio Professional, then you are not entitled to the latest release of Visual Studio Professional. (Ex. You purchased a standalone license of Visual Studio Professional 2019, your subscription is still active, you are not entitled to Visual Studio 2022)

    Also, if you purchased a Visual Studio Subscription in the calendar year 2015 but did not renew it, you don’t have access to Visual Studio 2019 and later versions.

     

    Sincerely,

    Anna
