So, I want to install VS 2019 buildtools within a docker container. Since this is docker, I don't need IDE. I only need everything vs_buildtools.exe installs and some additional C++ packages and windows sdk that can be added through vs_buildtools. Wondering if I need to have licensing or can just freely download the installer and install buildtools within my docker container?
