Hi,
I've signed in and using VS 2015 Community Edition for more than a year, but suddenly there is Expired License popup everytime I opened my VS 2015. I've tried all the tutorial provided in https://pupuweb.com/solved-visual-studio-community-license-expired-evaluation-period-ended/ , but still no good news.
And also, everytime I tried to add an account and using my current account, there is another error popup "AADSTS50074: Strong Authentication is required."
I don't know what else to do, can anyone please help me?

Thanks in advance.79637-screen-shot-2021-03-19-at-224947.png79629-screen-shot-2021-03-19-at-225027.png

    Have you tried the resolution proposed here: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/t/could-not-add-account-to-visual-studio-strong-auth/820688 ?

    There seems to be a problem specific to Visual Studio 2015. You may have your reasons to stick to VS 2015, but Id recommend to transition to VS 2019.

    As a temporary workaround you might add -max 31 - days to your Visual Studio license with a solution proposed by Dimitrii on: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43390466/is-visual-studio-community-a-30-day-trial (Follow the link to the github project on that page.)

    Hi @Leonardo Kevin Japri ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Have you clicked on the “Check for an updated license”? Are there any error messages?

    Please ensure that you are in a stable network environment. Then, open your default browser like IE and try to add some domain URLs to an allow list as trusted.

    Sincerely,
    Anna

    Hi
    @Leonardo Kevin Japri , have you solved?
    I've got exactly same issue, all was fine until yesterday, from today it say licence is expired and there is no way to renew...

    I already tried to reinstall (many problems also ther with lack of file during installation), but now I'm in this situation... Licence expired.

    Thank you
