Continue using Visual Studio 2019 Professional after 30 days offline

I have installed Visual Studio 2019 Professional using the online installer und logged in with my account with Visual Studio Professional subscription (obtained via MAPS).

Now this PC was moved to a location where internet access is not available because of security restrictions and I want to continue using Visual Studio to debug the applications running on this PC.

My problem is: After 30 days without internet connection my license gets deactivated and I cant activate it again.

Which options do I have for offline activation?

I should add that I am able to manuall copy files from and to the PC.

Hi @andrgin-6545 ,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

If you are using Visual Studio with no internet access, please use a produce key to unlock your Visual Studio.

Hi Anna

Sorry for the late reply.

Unfortunately the article did not help me because I do not have a product key. Also my subscription (obtained via Microsoft Action Pack subscription) does not support claiming a product key.
