Do I need to buy Team Foundation Server software?

You do not need to purchase Team Foundation Server software to use our TFS hosting service, but you will need to have a valid copy of Visual Studio.

Alternatively, you can use Visual Web Developer 2005/2008 or Visual Studio 2010 Express in conjunction with Team Explorer 2010 and for further information, please review the Visual Web Developer 2005/2008 and Visual Studio 2010 Express Knowledge Base article.
