Details

PowerShell module to get and set Visual Studio Community Edition license expiration date in the registry. Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 are supported.

Based on Dmitrii's answer to this question: Visual Studio Community 2017 is a 30 day trial?

Usage

  1. Download/clone this repository
  2. Run PowerShell.exe as Administrator

    Assuming that you cloned/downloaded this repo to
