Using host visual studio license to run build tools in windows container?
I have a host that has licensed Visual Studio 2019. I also have docker on the host and am building a container. I want to access host VS build tools from within the container. Wondering if I can use the host's license key to use build tools within my container? I don't want to install build tools directly in my container, since I am having problems doing that and also I am not sure if I will break any licensing terms since I will basically create a docker image and make it available for others to use. If my docker base can verify that the host is licensed for Visual Studio, I can then mount build tools from host into container. But am not sure if this case is covered by the supplemental license. Please suggest
