    Hi @pthsoon pthsoon ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    It’s better to confirm this by calling to a Microsoft licensing specialist directly. You can call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.(Pacific Time).

    In my opinion, if you are working on your own application and sell it, for example selling it to the company, like what the license mentioned

    If you are an individual working on your own applications, either to sell or for any other purpose …

    Then you should be an individual developer.

    If you join any organizations, or companies, and developing applications for them, then you may need to check "Organizational License" and "enterprise definition".

    License link: Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022.

    Best Regards,
