Hi.

I setup Visual Studio 2022 community to one of my PCs through a local layout where no internet connection is available.

After an installation, I skipped the sign in process at the beginning of course, but I heard from a few sources that the sign in will ultimately be needed after using 30 days.
Because this PC will never be able to connected to online, I wonder whether I will be required to sign in after 30 days from the installation or not.

  • FYI, please note that a license page in my VS community already shows that the "product key applied".

    Hi Jamie,

    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    Yes you would need to login into visual studio even if you use community edition. Since you have installed in a PC without internet you can try your luck if it asks you to login after trial period, I believe it would. See the below link...

    (or)

    Go with visual studio code.
