We have a legacy app that's been using DO.Net for a long time now, we've been keeping it up to date with v5 releases, but now we want to move the build into Azure DevOps pipelines.

Can you advise on the official/correct way to achieve this so the build/weaver is correctly licensed on the MS provided build images please?


Thanks, Tom

Hello Tom,

This is hard due to the fact that every image on Azure DevOps Pipeline in unique in terms of hardware identifier. That means even if you have a lot of PCs in for example Professional licenses, license will run out of available PCs. With Ultimate license there is a chance to build on devops but it is not trivial, Professional licenses won't work.

Are you bound to old .Net Framework that much? Because if there is a possibility to use a version of .Net Framework that compatible with .Net Standard I would recommend to switch to open-source versions like 6.0.x, it has no license required. Feature-wise it is almost the same, except some things like support for MS SQL Server only types - SqlGeometry and SqlGeography (no API to read them form Database), Some APIs might have changed but it is really depends on what feature set you use, we really try to keep backwards compatibility but sometimes it happens.

Hi Alexey

Thanks for the answer, we are unfortunately locked in to .Net 4 for this particular product.

I assume you own a Professional license, right?
