Issue/Introduction

Does Gen 8.6 for Windows 10 support the use of the Enterprise version of VS2017 / VS2019?  Do we have to use the Pro (Professional) version?  Visual Studio 2017 or 2019

Environment

Release : 8.6
Component : CA Gen Build Tool

Resolution

The 3 versions of Visual Studio are Community, Professional, and Enterprise. The Community version is not robust enough for Gen, so the Professional is the minimum version required. The Enterprise version has the same functionality as Professional, but with more bells and whistles. Therefore, Professional is required as a minimum, but Enterprise will work as well.
