Downloading software titles in Visual Studio subscriptions

Depending on which Visual Studio subscription you have, a wide variety of Microsoft software titles may be available to you. This article will outline how to locate and download the software you need to get the most out of your subscription.

Note

Only the downloads included with your subscription are displayed for you on the Downloads page. If you have more than one subscription or program membership, the downloads shown will be for the highest subscription you hold, even if you are currently viewing a different subscription. For example, if you have a Visual Studio Enterprise subscription and a Visual Studio Professional subscription both associated with the same sign-in ID, the downloads shown will be those included in the Enterprise subscription, even if you’re currently viewing your Professional subscription benefits.

How do I find downloads in the subscriber portal?

When you visit the Downloads page, you'll see popular downloads arranged in groups by product type. You can select one of the popular downloads shown, or search for any product using the search bar at the top of the page.
