MSDN Professional License cannot be found VSPro 2017 says it is an eval edition but Pro was just installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm probably installing the wrong vs_professional.exe.   My licensing went from an Enterprise to a Professional recently and somehow I had installed Enterprise (got caught with that before - my MSDN license tends to be Pro one year and Enterprise another) and everything stopped working (like that helps me under a deadline).   Right now I have pro installed but the installed version still says it is evaluation.  I'm logged in with my licensed account - I can go to the site and my license is valid - I can even pull the volume key and insert it into VS2017 but I still get dumped.

    I just want it to work when I need it to work.   What am I doing wrong?  Why does it say it is an eval edition?    Is the confusion necessary?
