Hello, I am using Visual Studio 2019 Professional version at the company I work for. I'm trying to create a test program with the .Net 7 environment provided by Visual Studio 2022. If i am not using the tool for a commercial or company project, is it okay to install it on my company computer?

    Hi @윤 종호, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    From Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 Licensing,

    If you are using the individual license for your own applications, it is allowed to install the VS2022 Community on your company’s computer.

    But it is not recommended to do this because the project may belong to “your company”, not “your own”. It is unclear.

    In this situation, I likely recommend you install and use the VS2022 Community on your personal computer. 

    If you are using organizational license, you need to check the requirements.

    For example, if your project is an open-source project, you can use the VS2022 Community on your company’s computer.
