Compatibility with Visual Studio Community


Unlike the Express Editions of Visual Studio that do not support extensibility, Visual Studio Community (2013 and newer) allows enhancing of the IDE with extensions, including Visual Assist. Any build of Visual Assist that supports Visual Studio 2013+ also supports Visual Studio Community 2013+.

If you are new to Visual Studio or migrating from an Express Edition of the IDE, find out if you qualify for an Academic or Personal License of Visual Assist. The audiences for these licenses of Visual Assist overlap the targeted audience of Visual Studio Community.
