  • Question

  • Our company now have an pretty old project that requires upgrade to modern platform like .NET. It's freeware, but not open source. What Have I to Pay for using .NET except for Visual Studio ? Are there any payments for my product?

    And what have I to pay, if I decide to sell my product?

  • The .NET framework is part of the OS, not subject to royalties as far as I can tell, anymore than dependency on dll's would be. But you could ask here:

    I'd agree, since .Net is a built-in component of the windows operating system you could choose the OS and read on here.

  • Thank you for the reply, but I'm talking not about framework .NET as a independent technology. It's more about final developed product.

    Let's imagine that company has developed desktop app(calendar, widget whatever) using Visual Studio.  What I have to pay Microsoft, when I sell instance of my app?

  • I developed applications in Visual Studio that I sold to customers. Other than for Visual Studio, I paid no royalties to Microsoft.

  • Thank you! I suppose, you are independent developer, right?

  • Yes, I was an independent developer for about 10 years.
